wacko.gif My name is Shantel and I am from Oregon. I am a stay at home, young (26) mother of five. I have 4 girls, Gabrielle is 9, Savannah is 6, Ireland is 4 and Scarlett is 8 months old. My son, Brennan is 2. I have been married for 7 years. I have visited other forums and did not like the way I was talked to. People have been saying alot of negative comments towards me and my family about being selfish breeders for having 5 bioliogical children, instead of adopting.....please, I just want to make some connections with people who can see me for the good person I am and not make me feel horrible that I love having kids.

It has really amazed me..not one negative comment!! I appreciate all the posts. This site seems alot different that the others I went to. I have never been made to feel so guilty for having so many kids...I guess I don't see what the big deal is..some woman said things that made me feel horrible and I admit I cried. I never thought people could be so mean...I feel really good now, knowing that I am welcomed here..thanks. wub.gif

Hey Shantel! wavey.gif

I'm an old broad, started late, I'm 42 and probably selfish and going to die before my children grow up (if you listen to those that criticize you!). To each his own - some of us were ready at a younger age than others!

Welcome - I think you will find many good folks here!!

Welcome aboard, Shantel! I can't say you'll never see a negative comment, but I can be pretty sure you won't see a lot about you having too many kids. I'm not especially young, but we have four kids too.

I come from a large family...9 children between the ages of 29 and 5, there are 3 girls and 6 boys..I am number 3 in line. my parents are still young....45 and 46. My mother birthed all 9 of us..no one is adopted.There are still 5 of my siblings that are under 18 and living at home and three of us older kids have kids ourself. I have five kids, my younger sister has one and my oldest brother has two kids. Things get very hectic anytime we go to my parents house. Out of all 9 of us kids, only 2 of us moved away from our hometown. My parents live in Oregon and we live 15 minutes from them and my younger sister lives in california. My family is not like alot of other families. my mother and I have been pregnant at the same time..my mother had my youngest brother on 11-23-03 and I had a daughter Ireland on 2-24-04..three months apart...I have another brother who is 10 months younger than my 9 year old daughter...very surreal situation...but my mom and me get along great...have not always seen eye to eye at times but she tries real hard to be there for everyone...my mom gets alot of grief for being 46 and having a 29 year old and a 5 year, but she shrugs it off...it is weird at times but i am more open minded about it now....we are all getting together for halloween and going trick o treating together...it is always a sight to see all of us. You can hear us long before you see us.. rolling_smile.gif
