How many kids do you have through, marriage, adoption, or otherwise and do you want more?

Total, would be 10, 5 I gave birth to, 1 step son from a previous marriage, and 4 that will me mine thru marriage in a few months. I also pretty well have many more that call me mom, as the neighborhood mom that I am proud to have the crew at my home most every weekend. I dont want to give birth to anymore, not sure my body could handle it, but if other children were in need of a place to call home, or someone to call mom I wouldnt turn them down.

I don't have any kids. And though this may sound harsh, but I don't mean anything by it, I don't want any. I love this silly saying to represent my anti-kids sentiment: "If I want to hear the pitter-patter of little feet, I'll put shoes on my cat." I thought that is hilarious. For those who want kids, please don't take offense. I have no disagreement with anybody who would love to be parents, and would probably be great at it.

Thanks for the comment, I have kids and it was not offensive to me. I feel like to each his own, meaning it is your decision. I thought that was funny myself.

I am a proud mother of 4. 3 children that I gave birth to and one whom I spiritually adopted when she was in great need. My 8 year old daughter was hit and killed by a car 8 years ago. She would be 16 now. My boys are 15 and 17. And my spiritually adopted daughter is now 19 and a mother of 2. So I technically have two beautiful grand-daughters now as well. I couldn't imagine having more. I have raised my children and they were and are a great blessing to me but they are all almost grown and we have a new chapter in our life opening now.

Hi sisterjinx, I am really sorry to hear of your loss, I could not imagine your pain. I also have 4 children so we have that in common. I have 3 boys and 1 girl. My oldest is 23 and in the Navy. A 19yr old, 16 yr(girl), 15yr old, so they are almost all grown up too.

i am married to my wife for five years now, before marriage we live together for 3 years. so that would be 8 in all. we have a two year old son, pictures appears as my avatar. my wife had been to a lot of miscarriages before we hit the jackpot. she is 38 now and scared to get pregnant and lost again. so she told me one is enough. i would like to have one more but i respect her decission. so our son is enough. i dont like to adopt.

I have cats not kids. I want no children, but if the right story came up, I'd take another cat in - don't want to tho.

Many people think of their pets as they're kids so I guess in a sense you do have kids...lol...

I have 3 grown children,, I was married for most of the time while raising them. When my oldest turned 18 I finally left. Still I sometimes think I should of waited till the youngest was 18. But after it all is said and done. My children seem to have done well for them selves and are happy most of the time anyway. They are also all of them good people, for that I have a lot of pride. How about you Hersheykiss have any kids?

I have two children so far. My eldest Lauren is just turned 4 years old and our youngest Rebecca is just turned 2. We are planning one more baby to complete our family hopefully in a couple of years

I don't have any children now (thankfully). I love kids, but I'm a long way from being ready to father and raise any. Maybe in another 10 years...or more.

I have 3, two thru marriage, one together. I originally wanted more and now and then get baby fever, but right now I am going through hell with the teenagers and we already decided no about more because of our ages/age difference. If not for the teenagers I would have had more. The little one is four and a half, I'd have been one of those crazy people with 3 under four probably. I am starting to believe having several teenagers at once is worse than having several toddlers or preschoolers at once. At least you can contain the toddlers or preschoolers. You can separate them, redirect them, and problem is over. Neither of those options work with teens, especially if they are bigger than you.

I have two kids - ugh, naturally, I guess is how you would put it. One boy and one girl. So I am good and don't plan on having any more. I love them lots!
