    Just wondering what you all think of this...

    Duggar Family Expecting 20th Child: '19 Kids And Counting' Mom Pregnant

    Duggar's 20th Pregnancy: Is It Safe? | Fox News

    Due in April, 45-year-old Michelle Duggar knows about the complications her age may place on her pregnancy, that's why she's putting in a good hour each day on the elliptical she was given for her birthday. "I'm really in better shape than I've been in 20 years," she said.

    So could this be the last child for the big family? "I don't know how it happened," Jim Bob joked. "We didn't want to stop at an odd number."

    "We are so excited," Michelle said. "I was not thinking that God would give us another one, and we are just so grateful."

    She should be careful, after 19 kids this one might just crawl out when its ready. :-)

    Never heard of them before but it looks like that's what they want, so it's awesome. From pics they look like a very decent family. But it must be quite a challenge to handle the logistics of having 20 kids.

    And the comments on Huffington Post? Just a bunch of frothy mouthed keyboard critics without any idea of family values. Most of their comments make no sense at all.

    This is all I can think of. Sorry:

    My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton

    IMO if they want that many kids that's their deal: however they must need to be in the public eye to pay for them - just my opinion anyway.

    Many of the people on this forum support primal eating on the basis of being environmentally friendly, but having 20 kids because God tells them so is perfectly okay? I think all of us agree that the world is overpopulated as it is, do we not? Just throwing this out there.

    It's not anyone's business but their own. If they can raise them and care for them responsibly and the kids are loved and cared for, all the more power to them.

    Having that many kids is not for me though. Yikes!

    If they want to have that many kids, it's their business, but I have to say I'm really surprised that they are having more after the difficulties from birth 19. I believe I read somewhere that the doctors told her she shouldn't have any more after that one for some reason.

    Do they? Or do they rely on the older children to raise their younger siblings?
