HI, I am Joede and new to this board and so excited to be here!

I have 6 children and unfortunately we are done. I want more, often but .. well no point in going into that now.

I have been married for almost 18 years (this month). Our oldest is Coree, she is 17 and is graduating from high school this year, she has Down syndrome; Emory is 10 and is homeschooled, Doyle is 6 and is homeschooled, Eli is 4 and homeschool, Quinn is 3 and quite the little princess but will remind you of Pigpen constantly, our youngest is just shy of 2 (december) and her name is Zoe.

I never fathomed we would have more than 2 kids...for years (you can see the age difference) I wasn't sure we would have more than 1, but once we had #2..I wanted #3 and then everything else just kinda took off. My last 3 are 17 and then 15 mos apart.

Glad to be here.

Welcome!! You and I have similar stories. My oldest dd will be 17 in April and my next dd is 10. Finally, I got pregnant after 6 years! There were many years that we thought that one was all we were going to have. I had to do some serious fertility treatments to get #3 and then SURPRISE 10 months later I am pregnant with #4. If I were younger, and it weren't so difficult for me to get pregnant - I would have more!!! I will be married for 17 years this month.

Glad you found our board!! There is a great group of ladies here!!
