Looks like Michelle and Jim Bob are thinking about adoption.

I had never heard of these people until the dis, then I read page after page of not very pleasant posts about them. I saw them on Dr. Oz the other night and recognized the name from here. Seemed like some nice, clean good people to me. The lady, who isn't very liked on the dis, was just as nice as she could be.

They follow the "A Quiver Full" ideal... to each their own, the Dugger family is doing great with their kids.
I had my first the month after I turned 21, second was born 25 months later and last was born 15 months after that... they were all girls and we never really had that sibling rivalry thing going on. Now one is married herself and just waiting to find out that she is expecting, they don't plan on waiting long before trying. I think they are just waiting to find out when he is heading out to basic training.

I agree. It baffles me the way some can get panties in a twist over other family's choices. If a couple wants no children, a few, several, or 6 dozen, it's not my business. The family seems happy.

Zero Population Growth may be why some consider the Duggar family to be out of control. In a nutshell, ZPG is the concept that Earth's natural resources are limited; our planet cannot support an ever-increasing number of inhabitants. Therefore, ideally we should limit family size to two children, to be the parent "replacements." It's not a question of whether any one couple has the financial and emotional resources to support/raise a large number of children; it's about thinking globally and being socially responsible enough to help guarantee that this planet will continue to be able to support it's inhabitants.

(Not saying whether I agree with this, just thinking about why some people question having 19kids in one family.)

Some couples/singles have zero children.

They can financially and emotionally support their kids. So I say good for them.

I do find it amazing that with 19 kids, so few of them have medical problems. One of the older daughters has something with her legs that gives her pain, Josie was very premature and had health problems for a while (don't know if she still does or if she outgrew them) and Michelle had the 2 miscarriages. If there is anything else then they are doing a good job of keeping it private. But when you hear that 1 in 4 kids is being diagnosed with autism, her success rate is astounding.

With that said though, so young to have so many kids, every 18 months!! I am not judging, just commenting because I assume they will continue having children-------and surprised Michelle isn't having another. I assume perhaps her days many be done??

Any thoughts??????
Sure you are.

Their kids are running closer to 2 years apart not 18 months & that is a very average age span. 3 kids at that age is really not that big of a deal. Would people be up in arms if Josh were one of 3 instead of 19?
Eta: the 1st 2 are 20 months apart & the 3rd is due right around #2's 2nd birthday. Still not that close imo.

Actually, our Social Security and Medicare systems could use a few new people paying in. Maybe the Duggars will help make them solvent again.

And besides. I'm sure there are al least 19 Chinese families only having one child.

My thoughts are that it is really none of my business as long as they are able to care for their children. They seem like they are raising kind, independent and productive people. I really don't see why people have such issue with them.
