Now that DH and I have announced that we will be expecting our third child in just as many years, I have become accutely aware of how unacceptable people find this. If I have to answer, "Yes, we wanted more children," one more time I just may scream! I am embarrased when people ask, "Oh are you on the two year plan?" or "You guys do know that they make something for that?" We have always wanted a big family, six specifically, and we don't believe in artificial birth control. We love our children. We love our family and feel we have it in our own hearts to love and care for as many children as God blesses us with. God will never give you more than you can truly handle...whether you believe you can or not. So, next time you think about calling someone "crazy" or responding with a gasp and a shocked look b/c you have just learned they WANT a big family...think twice. No, we're not some weird religious cult and no we're not ever going to be on TLC for having 16 (or w/e) children...we're just normal and we want a large family.
