I am thankful for the right to bear children.
(I am also thankful for the right to bear arms...but I can get to that in another post ;) )
I posted a Status Update on Facebook yesterday about The Duggar Family from 19 Kids and Counting on TLC and the news of them expecting their 20th child.
The responses I got were more or less what I was expecting hear, but it was truly interesting to read everyone else's point of view on the subject.
Where do I stand on this subject? If you hadn't already guessed by what I am thankful for today...I think it is great that they are having another baby! More power to them! I truly commend the woman for going through pregnancy, having an infant and raising a toddler as many times as she has. Let's not forget the fact that they have raised some truly amazing children and are managing to support such a large family and remain financially stable.
I am so thankful for the ability that I have, as a woman, to bear children. There are so many women out there that are unable to have children and would LOVE to be able to experience pregnancy and even child birth. I have realized, even more so after having my 3rd child, what an AMAZING thing it is that we can create. We create little humans! The most intelligent creatures on the planet with more potential that you could even begin to imagine.
Now on to the fun part...and the hardest part...raising them to reach that potential. :)
