The Dugger family is expecting their 20th child. Wow! I think its awesome for them. They are an inspiration as to their faith, their family life, their commitment to each other and to their children. They have made a choice for life and have accepted the struggles and joys that go with that. They seem to love each other very much and they seem to have a handle on their family life. It works for them. It may not work for everyone but it does for them. I am sad about the negative responses to their joyful news.
I have six children and I cannot count the number of times that someone has so rudely said to me, "Are you done yet?" "Do you know what causes that?" "Is this your last one?" I wonder if anyone has stood outside an abortion clinic and asked those same questions in that context, "Are you done yet?" "Do you know what causes that?" "Is this your last one?"
Would people be appalled at a gay couple who chooses to adopt 20 kids? I think not. They would be applauded I'm sure.
I say, more power to you Dugger's. God Bless you and I wish you the best always. What do you say?
