Our Blended Family

Totally off the subject of hair for a moment. I had to post this, especially after watching the Duggers. Which is a family that lives in Arkansas and they couple have 20 children and counting...which means they have no intentions of not having more children. Most people would be outraged or appalled that a couple would choose to have so many children, however Psalm 127:3says Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. My husband and I have 7 children, five of them came with the package deal and the youngest were recently added. I cannot imagine my life without them. They are truly blessings and it's a privilege to raise them righteously and in the teachings of the Lord. 5 boys and 2 girls and Lord willing when our income increases significantly I wouldn't mind having another one. I honestly believe as long as you can take care of them you should have as many children as you want and I'm grateful to live in a country where this is not dictated by the government. Again not hair related but I had to mention it...Here's a link of the Duggers

Well look at your beautiful babies girl!! We have a blended family of 6, all adults except one 16 year old son. I thought about more, but my hubby is up there in age and said he didn't want anymore, so we just mentor other children and try to be a positive influence in their lives. He says that way, he can send them back home when they work his nerves (LOL). Anyway, Blessings to you and your hubby for being such a blessing to children. You GO GIRL!!!

Thanks for the positive feedback. Most people cringe when I tell them we have 7 but when I look at situations that a lot of kids are raised in I'm thankful God chose us to help raise this bunch! And Blessings to you, you're working it over there as well :)
