Dear Wendy My mom was the second girl 4th oldest out of fifteen children and then my grandma adopted 3 more = 18
Grandma always said she was blessed and with this many kids she was guaranteeing she had good old age security, she talked softly carried a big stick and told people some can, some can't, thank God, he trusts me.

It is hard, in this day and age to raise a large family. Somehow, families like ours don't get the mainstream support that a large family used to attract. I have 7 myself, and drive a 15 passenger van. Believe me, I get some looks and comments. I like to smile and when they ask why in the world I had 7 children, I always say, "Because I couldn't talk my husband into 10!" Humor and a good attitude deflect a lot of criticism, and my guess is, they don't really care why I have 7, they're just trying to be smart-mouthed:P
