Siblings?

I only have one brother. He is two years older than I am. We are totaly different. He is very out going, always the life of the party. He is alot like my mom was. Where I am more like my dad was. More quite and reserved.

Do you come from a big family?

There were 7 of us. I'm the oldest. One sister died, just after birth, when I was about a year old. Another one was stillborn between my two brothers. That leaves me, my two brothers and two sisters. There are 10 years between me and the youngest, my sister, June.

I'm the youngest of seven. If you'd like a few, please pm me.

My dad was one of 13, my Mom one of 12. Great times!

Yes I did and so was my dad.

I'm the fourth child and the third boy. My mom & dad have passed on, as did all his siblings. His mom & dad had 14 kids, he and my mom had 13.

He also fathered a child on the outside by another woman - a girl, which we've later accepted as our other sister.

Most of us are still alive and well. We've lost one brother though over 3 years ago.

I am an only child, and all three of my husbands have also been only children.

I have 3 sisters. My mom has one sister. They didn't really come FROM a large family, but, what we have keeps multipying!!LOL
I have 7 nieces and nephews and 21 great nieces and nephews. Now, I still have one nephew that hasn't had kids yet and then my boys. My Aunt only had one child and she has 2. So, our family reunions are getting bigger and bigger!!LOL It's so much fun though when we are all able to get together.
