Money/space/age haven't ever really influenced how many kids we would have. We sort of took it one by one because it's hard to say how many you want/can handle before you actually have that many! That said, we always said 2-3 and then that changed to 4-5. After 4 we were done but didn't do anything permanent, so we were still open to the possibility of 5, just didn't think it would happen. And now we have 5. I think we will be stopping there!

I had two siblings growing up and DH had three. I suppose that influenced me to want 3 kids, because everyone I knew growing up had 3 kids and it seemed like the normal number. But it didn't really influence the 4th and 5th.

Adoption is something I really really admire but it's not something we would consider, I don't think.
