We tried for 2 years to have children, gave up on fertility drugs, and became pregnant. Mom and I both wanted a large family, and now have 8. 5 boys and 3 girls from 9 mos. to 9 years old. We don't go out alone, even though we know we should, but who wants to babysit 8 kids??? LOL. We chose to have these children, and go nowhere without them..... groceries, dinner, parades, anywhere. If our kids can't go, we don't go. We also go without alot of things. The kids have bugged us for a WII, but we have other things to buy with $200+. They understand. We are so proud of all of them, we hope you all can enjoy them too.
