Large Families

I know that large families are not for everyone, but they are a viable choice which creates healthy, well-adjusted children.  I hope that in my writing I show that having many children can be a joy, not that much more work than one, two, or three children (and sometimes less), and that it's just a lot of fun.  Of course we have our challenges, but that is due more to the nature of parenting than the number of children we have.  I have listed below links to posts where I deal specifically with raising a large number of children.  You'll notice the progression as we grew from a family with 5 children to a family with 10 children.
