Hello there,my name is Lacey , i am currently pregnant with: My third child at home,BUT, my husbands first, the other 2 are teens from when i was younger, AND this is my 7th child because I have 4 for other people when i was a surro. I have some concernes and dont want people to think I am nuts. Do you wait till you actually can AFFORD children or do you go ahead and try? WHy for either way. We are way past broke, but I am 32 and I dont want this to be my last! I feel like if I wait, it will be over for me. Also, if you dont wait to afford them, how do make ends meet? I am not a gaduate, but very wise in other areas. I dont mind working, but I dont want to have 4 kids an babysitters bring them up. What would you do?I know this asking for alot of info and giving alot of info, but I have come across this board before, and never know what to say...

Hope that wasn to conusing, or didnt offend anyone, You ever get stuck in life and just dont know who to ask??

Thank You Ashypoo03 for my Beautiful Siggy

If I waited till I had enough money for my kids, I'd never have kids! No one can pay for their kid's college education anymore, I stopped worrying about that a long time ago. My kids have everything they NEED and more. Money is just paper to me.

I have no money..lol. However my kids never go without food, and all the basics and we are always able to come up with money for other things it just takes careful planning but we are even able to do trips. As long as you can pay rent (or morgage) and feel you can feed them the rest will just fall into place. I think it depends on what you are willing to sacrifice. I don't get out, barely buy myself things but I don't miss it at all.

We don't have money either. My kids are fed, clothed and most off all LOVED! We get comments all the time that we cant afford more kids but,, if we waited for money to come then the children would not be here. Do whats in your heart

Lol we never have any money, but no one is going without. Things work out for themselves.

Hmm thats a hard one LOL Well we have been very blessed financially but it has not always been this way when we started out we struggled but always made do. We never went with out and our Faith has been a huge part of what I believe made all things work out.

I dont think waiting till you reach that magic money number is feasable these days.
