Arkansas Mother Gives Birth to 16th Child

http://www.breitbart.com/news/2005/10/12/D8D6KS7O1.html

I saw the special they did on them that aired on the Discovery Health Channel. They went to the grocery store and spent over 800 bucks in one trip.

I wonder how they afford it all.

Either they have really good jobs or the get government help.

Maybe that's harsh not knowing the people personally, if so, sorry. That's just my opinion.

I tip my hat to that woman. She must be a very even tempered individual. The children she has are so fortunate to have so many siblings! What a legacy she and her husband are creating! They're probably also teaching their children very important things, such as learning to share, and not worrying so much about looks (braces) as much as their hearts.

Generally speaking, when people have such a large brood, folks from their church and neighborhood chip in, and large companies will at times, donate products as well. That would be my guess as to the money.

I still wish I had had another little one!
