    That's a lot of kids! My friend is deaf and has 9 kids and lives here in WA. She is single mom, also! She works hard and her older kids take care of their kids when she's at work. It's amazing!

    That is awesome that the family is all Deaf ... I can't imagine how much they gotta pay right before the start of the school year... the kids need new clothes & new shoes then at Christmas time to buy presents for the kids... Whew !!!! I am sure they had many close calls with the finanical situation. God Bless :) :angel:

    I think that's too many. It's your kids, don't make your kids take care of your other kids. I'd rather have 3 or 4 kids. :)

    Vampy, No kids are too much, If you don't want too much then don't have too much, but there's nothing wrong with this couple or anyone else for all that matters that has a lot of kids.

    I gotta say I'm impressed that nothing stops this family from having too many kids, It's all about love, caring and sharing. ;)

    Heh... I can just imagine how the proposal conversation went:


    Jeff: I'm getting married.
    Lisa: To someone else?
    Jeff: No, we're getting married.
    Lisa: We are?
    Jeff: Yup.
    Lisa: Says who?
    Jeff: Says me.
    Lisa: Oh. OK. When?
    Jeff: Um... Next year?
    Lisa: Sounds good.


    Now if only more people proposed that way... They'd have something to laugh about afterwards.

    It is a sweet story about the couple and their 11 children but I personally think it is not fair for the older kids because they are receiving less attention from their parents who are too busy concentrating on the younger children.

    Maybe their oldest children watch over younger ones while their parents go out on date or whatever. :dunno:

    That's true Are you also from a large family, too ? Smile
    (thats what happened to me when
    I was the third oldest of a very large family,
    not enough attention from my parents
    because they were too busy with other
    younger kids)

    That's true I was the third oldest from another
    large family I already learned how to watch
    younger kids while my parents went out
    on dates... I already learned how to be
    responsible at a very early age. That's NOT Fair.

    Wow that is just amamzing and beautiful! I think it's wonderful they have so many! As long as the kids are well cared for and being loved, it doesn't matter how many they have. :) My paster's wife has 2 deaf parents, they had 8 kids but all 8 were hearing, not one was deaf, that is something. :)
