Hey everyone, since we have a little more action going on here these days I thought it might be fun to have a QOTW, so here goes:

<span style="font-family:Comic Sans MS">If money were no object, how many children would you want to have (either bio or adopted)?</span>

If we could afford it, I would love to adopt one or two more older children from China. There is a gorgeous 12 year old girl on Holt's photolisting right now, and I'd bring her home in a heartbeat if I could. Maybe we'll hit the lottery one of these days...

I think that three daughters would be our choice. Maybe because that's where we are right now in life, but I know that even if money were no object my husband would still work like crazy . . . he LOVES his job . . . so I'd still be a stay-at-home mom and three seems like our lucky number.

If money were no object we would probably have 6+. I would like to have at least 1 bio to be able to go through the pregnancy process and the rest we would adopt. We've always wanted a big family. I'm an only child and dh didn't live near any of his siblings til he was almost 10. We want our children to have siblings for that unity
