 I'm expecting number 4 and this will by my last biological child. We plan to adopt in the future if that is in our cards.

I grew up in with just one sibling. My parents were both from large families and wanted a large family but after my mom had a stillborn she didn't have the heart to try ever again.

I think everyone should be able to choose for themselves their family size. I do not judge any parents for the amount of children they do or do not have.

 -How many kids do you plan on having? 10 total

-How many do you have right now? 8 ~ 6 living

-How large was your family growing up? I was adopted and an only child

-Do think large families are good or bad? Good for us. Having a large family isn't for everyone and I understand that.

-Do you think only children are good or bad? I don't think good or bad. If someone chooses to only have one child then thats their choice.

Quoting la_bella_vita:

 -How many kids do you plan on having?  2, maybe 3 biological, and if we want more after that we hope to adopt.

-How many do you have right now?  1

-How large was your family growing up? I was an only child

-Do think large families are good or bad? I think they are fun, but I think it is irresponsible to do it on purpose.

-Do you think only children are good or bad? I was very lonely growing up, and connected more to adults than children, even though I was socialized from age 3. I felt distant and didn't relate to the other kids. That may have nothing to do with being an only child, but I think it definitely had an affect on my sense of identity.

5 or 6 (but only 4 home grown)

3

6 kids.

I think they can be really good or they can go terribly bad depending on the parents.

(ditto my large family answer)

 -How many kids do you plan on having? 4

-How many do you have right now? 4

-How large was your family growing up? 2 kids (me and my sister)

-Do think large families are good or bad? I have seen it both ways. It isn't size that dictates how a family is )good or bad) it is parenting.

-Do you think only children are good or bad Same as above.

I want atleast one more.

I have one girl now.

Our family had 3 girls.

My sisters were 10 years apart from me,and 18 mon. apart from eachother( I was adopted). They were always close growing up, and I was just there, we never had a relationship, and still don't... There was always a lot of fighting over things. 

When my sisters moved out of the house when they were 18, I have to say it was really nice!! I was very spoiled,and never board cause on the weekends I always had my friends over..
