Hello all!! My name is Tracy I am a 32 y/o SAHM. I am married going on 14 years. I have four daughters ages 13,10,7,3 and would love to add one more to our family in the future, (hopefully in a year or two) followed by a tubal ....lol. I am here looking to find others who love having a large family, sometimes people (including my husband) think I am crazy for wanting more children and it would be nice to find others who love being a mom as much as I do. I am also a mom who has come from a difficult background and had to learn the art of parenting and life as I went. I am also diagnosed with bi=polar/borderline/ptsd/anxiety/depression and sometimes find it hard to meet others, more so moms to get to know and have friends that are not scared off by and can relte to these issues! Sometimes it is hard not to have a family or mom to go to for hard times or support. Anyway glad to be here and looking forward to getting to know each of you!

Welcome! I'm another Tracy, but I only have 3. We are feeling a little overwhelmed right now and too old for more, but totally get what you mean about trouble meeting people

Hello and welcome Tracy! You've just joined an awesome group, the ladies here are very understanding and supportive. I'm Ashleigh, 40 years old, married 14 years, and we have 2 boys, ages 13 and 8. I am diagnosed with major depression, anxiety, ptsd, and I also have social anxiety, which makes it pretty tough to make friends, especially other moms. 2 boys is plenty for us, they were both what I call infertility babies, and ya, 2 boys is enough lol! But I think larger families are awesome!

Welcome! I have many of the same diagnoses and I find it hard to meet other moms too.  I think there is a lot of judgement that people like us can't be good moms.
