How Many Kids Is Too Many?

I will be the first to admit (I hate admitting this) that there was a time when I thought it wasn't right to have huge families. I would look at big families and judge them wondering how in the world could they take care of all those kids.

I always thought I only wanted 2 kids until we started having kids and then we realized how much of a blessing each one of them is and the bigger your family the more blessings you have running around. I then started looking at larger families in a different way. In the last couple of years I have actually been dreaming of a mega size family. Funny how God works isn't it? Once you talk negative about something then usually God's sticks you right in middle of that situation.

When we had our extra 4 kiddos over the weekend both Chris and I realized that we both want a very large family. Chris even said "you know it would be fun if they called us with 4 again." When we put our own
selfishness aside we had plenty of time for 4 extra ones.

On Facebook this morning someone posted about a blog post and so I wanted to share it with you on why bigger is better so just click here to read it.

I know many people thought we were crazy taking in four. I really don't care though if anyone thinks we are crazy because we know the truth and the truth is that God blessed our socks off having 7 kids running around the house.
