Hello everyone!

First of all, I'd like to say that it is BEYOND wonderful to come across this thread of parents who have larger families too! I really look forward to chatting with many of you!

As far as me & my family... My name is Melissa, 31, & have been with my best friend & jr. high school sweetie a total of 15 years Phil, 35 & have been married for the last 12 of those years.
Together we have 7 beautiful children -- Kira 13, Kaila 11, Kelly 10, Kobe 8, Kurstin 6, Kyleen 4, & Kory 3. After 2 miscarriages since my last son, we are happily 5 weeks 2 days pregnant with #8, due December 6, 2013.

Although we really would love to have 10 children, we fear this will be our last because of our c-section history -- #2 was my first c-section, emergency c-section with #4, repeat c-section #5 (which really had me upset because I wanted another vbac & was already 5 cm when I showed up at L&D but the OB didn't want to 'risk' his practice, & then #6 & #7 were c-sections too.

We have plans of switching OB's this pregnancy (honestly should've done it much much sooner) to an OB who is a part of a specialized children's hospital with the hopes of not having to get my tube cut (yes you've read that correctly... I have only had one tube since I had to get the other removed when I was 16 due to a missing duct).

Anyways, my husband works industrial & is a fabulous mechanic (as a side business) & I am currently a volunteer EMT & have returned to college to get my paramedic & physician assistant degrees.

We currently cyber charter school our children & I positively love it!!!

If anyone would like to know anything else, please feel free to ask. :

Thank you for the warm welcome everyone!!!

Regarding the question concerning cyber charter school -- Cyber charter school is a free public school education that is similar to home school, but the curriculum is already planned out for you. They 'loan' you a computer, supply a state certified teacher to help you, reimburse you for internet, & provide all of the materials, books, art supplies, etc. that you need to help your child learn. If you want more info., you can google 'k12 online cyber charter school' because I'm unable to post links as of yet.

Ah yes, I knew about k12. I thought maybe it was some sort of private school version.
