Name: Kim

Dh: Lee

Kids: We have 7 - Adrienne (11), twin girls Lauren and Hannah (9), Caleb 5 (6 in June), Jayden 3 (4 in May), Nathan 1... and our angel, Aaron (4/11/09) who went to heaven when I was 20w2days pg.

Are you done or still working on that? Well, that depends on who you ask LOL! Dh says done (probably...maybe), I say still working on that (all in God's time!).

Anything else you'd like to add? I also homeschool. We just moved from a house with a large yard and no room in the house, to no yard (but nice neighborhood) and LOTS of room. It's been a huge adjustment for everyone, especially our dog!

1. Your Name Christine

2. DH name Chris

3. Kids names and ages ALL boys Joey (15) Declan (9 1/2) Kieran (5) and baby Orry (almost 20 months)

4. Are you done or still working on that?
We are done...we WERE done after 3 but DH didn't make that doctor's appt and I saw his sweet face!! This time he made the appt when I was 7 months pregnant


5. Any other information you would like share?
We have been married 20 years this June (at 19 and 21) and *I* always thought we'd have 4 kids by the time we were 'old and 30' but waited to start until DH was finished uni. When sitting with the DH recently I said to him "Y'know if we'd had them closer together we would have had 6?" He responded with "Yeah, I know" He comes from a family of 7 and wanted 2...he was the baby! But he was adamant he be younger than his father was when HE was born. My FIL was 41 when DH was born...DH was 40 when Orry was born. My inlaws had 6 kids in 7 years and 7 years later had DH!! I actually thought we wouldn't have #4 because I miscarried at 14 weeks the year before and did NOT want to 'try again'...no one even knew we were pregnant until I lost it...and had to spend my birthday in the hospital having surgery. But I healed...gave us 3 months to get pg...and convinced I WASN'T I peed on that stick! We did have a REALLY hard time naming him...I think because we already had names planned for the one we lost and I could NOT use those. People think we are crazy to have 4...you guys make me feel like we don't have enough!

1. Your Name - Amber

2. DH name - Tim

3. Kids names and ages - We're a beautiful, blended, getting larger (hopefully) family. Dss- Kaiden (8), Dd- Tora (5 1/2), Dd - Aurora (2 1/2), Ds- (1 1/2)

4. Are you done or still working on that? We're currently ttc (by checking cervix and cm) #5!

5. Any other information you would like share? Every single one of my friends & family (or so it feels) think me and dh are crazy for ttc. We have a way to support our family. We don't struggle at all. It's not the finances I worry about. I am not worried about the emotional aspect either. I don't get their concerns. My mother in law actually said to me, ”Do you know what it looks like to have all these kids?! Are you nuts?!” Um....I think that if you didn't know us personally, you'd never guess we're a blended family. It's obvious our children are well taken care of and very loved. It's beyond obvious we're very much in love and devoted to each other. I don't know. It drives me crazy that I'm judged because of how many children I have or want to have. It's nice to know I'm not alone in feeling less than complete and wanting a large, possibly expanding family. It's nice to meet you all. I hope we get to know each other!

We are an active duty National Guard family. This gives us the benefits of the military without the normal instability that regular active duty transfers bring. I grew up in a large city, but we are settled in a small town and "turned country" pretty quickly. We love raising animals (chickens, turkeys, ducks, goats, sheep, and pigs) and enjoying the tight knit community of our small town. We are also baseball and softball fanatics, and 3 of our current 4 children love to perform....maybe we should live closer to town with all the practices we end up traveling to and from!

2. DH name - Chris
3. Kids names and ages - Dan (12), Anna (10), Chloe (6), Alex (5), Ben (3), Elijah (1)
4. Are you done or still working on that? - I am pretty sure we are done...
5. Any other information you would like share?

Our family is a blended one 3 are "mine" 2 are "his" and 1 is "ours" but I try to think of them all as mine. We have a crazy visitation schedule with the 5 oldest and that tends to make life a little hectic (We generally have 3 to 4 kids every day and 6 kids twice a week ) but I thoroughly enjoy all of my kids!

Nice to meet you all


Selena
