A woman in B.C. gives birth to little Abigail, her 18th child. Her husband explains:
We never planned how many children to have,” he said. “We just let God guide our lives, you know, because we strongly believe life comes from God and that’s the reason we did not stop the life.
“We let life come.”
I’m all for big families (though it’s a bit theoretical in my case), as I believe, after many years spent in the sterile wilderness of modern uncommitted “relationships”, that a batch of happy children will make you considerably richer than any big-time city job. I don’t think I’d be good with quite as many myself, but hey.
Congratulations to the happy family! And, er, good luck.
