18 kids?

We'd love to have more? If you haven't been under a rock, you've probably heard that the Duggars have had their 18th child. Talk about a slap in the face to everyone trying to conceive and having trouble. If they want more and can afford all of these children, why not adopt? There are plenty of children who need loving homes. In fact, if DH and I are never blessed with a pregnancy that sticks, we plan to adopt. Why is it these people feel that they need to keep popping out kids every year or so and risking her health? I know some people won't agree with me and feel that if they can afford to have them then by all means do. But come on people!! 18 kids? And you still want more? The older kids are the ones raising the younger kids. The oldest son married a girl that he had never even kissed. Wanna bet neither of them had a clue of what to do on the wedding night? I wonder if she was told to "Lie back and think of England?" Somehow, I can almost imagine that and it makes me chuckle evilly to myself.

OMG I know how you feel!!!! It is a slap in the face, I mean thats all grand if you can have that many children and whatnot, but for those of us who can't just pop them out like that it hurts...doesn't seem fair how someone can be blessed with 18 KIDS but there are more than 18 couples out there that would die for the chance to JUST HAVE ONE.
