"Four is the new two"
At least that's what it seems like around here. Most of our friends seem to have families with more than the "average" American household. So while "average" American families may have 2.09 children (which is more than, I think, an average family has had in recent years), many of the gatherings we go to here, the children outnumber the adults by a sizeable ratio. We're thrilled by this news and always happy to find stories about other "large" families. This is a post written by another adoptive mom (2 of her 8 are adopted from Ethiopia) and she shares here her thoughts about the continuing discernment of family size. Check it out---it's a nice start your week! Larger Families: Q&A- Finding Harmony on Family Size
