I'm a stay at home welfare mother

I have 6 children and I'm expecting 2 more which are twins. My husband works as a front end zone manager at Wal-mart and I'm a stay at home mother also a full time college student. Since we have 6 children so far and my husband doesn't make enough because of family size we're qualify for welfare like food stamps, WIC for my 3 children who aren't 5 yet and the twins will get WIC after they are born as well, and medicaid. My husband has a degree in forensics but couldn't find a job so far that fits his degree so he got a job at Wal-mart a few years ago as cashier then he got promoted twice. I'm doing online college for nursing and I got a year left, nursing job probably easier to find than job in forensics. I'm trying to do couponing recently so we can have more food and other things like toiletries. Neither my husband or I believe in birth controls and condoms because it's not natural and because of our religious beliefs. We're elegible for welfare so we took it, I have no shame in it and it helped my children get more proper nutrition and with medicaid they got they'll be able to go to doctors when they are sick without worrying. We had trouble making ends meets a few times before we got on welfare, had to pay a high utility bill each month because 2 of my children has cystic fibrosis and they are on a breathing machine at home. The house we live in is a 4 bedroom 2 bathroom house with a pool that my husband's late uncle gave to us so we only pay property taxes each year at least we don't have to worry about rent or mortgage. We don't have cable because it's not really a necessities and I do need the internet to finish my online school and it only cost $40 a month. We're doing everything we can to provide for our children. No one can tell me how many children I should have it's my body.

Natural Family Planning is a natural way to not have a million kids.

So many things wrong... kids before education... procreation when on welfare... not working when on welfare... procreating with a high chance of kids having a debilitating condition... etc... etc...

Were you raised on welfare?
