My 2 Cents

Many bloggers have been discussing the Duggar family recently. They are featured in a television story titled "14 Kids and Pregnant Again! " The Duggars are "quiverfull" which means they believe in letting God determine the size of their family, forgoing any type of birth control or natural family planning. Many people are critical of them. As the mother of 7, who would gladly have another, my only thought is this: If you act so horrified at the thought of having more than 2 or 3 or however many children you already have, what message is this sending to those children? That more of them would be so terrible? I feel that by giving my kids the message that I'd love another, it affirms my love for them. They are so wonderful that I WOULD love another, and I want them to know it!
