    I see an A and P repair in her future, and possibly a bladder suspension.

    They want more? Man, well as long as they can care for the kids then I see no real problems. Them having so many could make up for me not having any

    I like the part about "this birth is really exciting because this is the first time in 8 years they have had a girl."

    Now somebody tell me why this is news. I know for a fact that she is not the first woman to have 16 kids.

    Wasn't he a state rep for Arkansas?

    Yep - he is running again next year. Personally, although you may be able to produce and support these children - the older ones seem to be raising the younger ones. I know that it is not possible to devote much time to 18 kids when there are only two adults.

    Yes, he was & he lost one reelection bid already I'm pretty sure. I didn't know he was trying again.

    I was curious & read more about this family once and found some stuff that I thought was pretty 'out there' (in addition to having 16 kids).

    Yes. I'm still perplexed why this makes them national news.




    Well actually, that's not true. I find them sort of creepy and that's fascinating in an awful way. I bet that is why they keep making news.

    The kids are fed, dressed, and loved. They are not on welfare and dad is the father of all 16. God bless them.
