Everyone knows about the Duggars – the Arkansas family composed of 20 members: 2 parents and 18 kids. Jim and Michelle Duggars got married in 1984, and while they started using the Pill in the beginning, bad experiences with it led them to decide to use natural birth control. Since then, their family has grown to a size that is not normally seen these days. The Duggars have attracted a lot of attention – they have their own web site and have even made numerous TV appearances.
Now you would think that having 18 children would be enough to take measures NOT to have more. It’s not so for the Duggars! They have managed to raise their children in an amazing way, and their lives are perfect examples of practical living. Actually, just recently, they built a 7000 sq. ft. home debt free!
Their adventure is not over yet, though – eight months after Michelle gave birth to Jordyn-Grace (the 18th child), she found out that she was pregnant again! She is due to give birth in March, several months after the first Duggar grandchild is due. Yup, the eldest son, John, and his wife, Anna, are expecting their first child in October. This family is something else, isn’t it?
Number of kids aside, the Duggars have been role models for many families around the world. Jim and Michelle have done an astounding job in raising their children. Perhaps more parents out there – new and experienced alike – might learn a thing or two from them!
