The Duggar family announced they are expecting their 20th child this spring. With that came all sorts of reactions around the world.
There are questions ranging from how they can afford it to questions about Michelle, who is already 45, and her health after her last pregnancy's issues.
The Duggars, who star in a hit reality show on TLC dubbed "19 Kids and Counting," believe that children are a gift from the Lord and have no plans of preventing any more children.
While I can't imagine (or desire) 20 kids in my house, it's hard for me to find negatives with their family situation. The brood all appears happy and healthy, have strong faith and values and are not a burden on society.
I know of families with only two or three children that depend on public assistance and are up to their eyeballs in debt.
This family is debt free and self-supporting. The family homeschools, so the children aren't even overtaking a public school.
Some say that the older children have too much responsibility for their younger siblings, but it doesn't seem to bother them, does it?
While it's not for me, I have to commend and congratulate them. They seem to be doing a pretty fine job with their family. And really, when you already have 19 kids, what's one more?
