42 year old woman gave birth to her 18th child…

In Arkansas City – A 42 year old mom brought her 18th child into the world by Ceasarian section. The healthy baby girl, weighed 3,26 kilos was born at the Mercy Medical Center in Rogers. “She is very beautiful. Exactly like her mother and sisters”, says the very proud Dad. The couple has now 10 sons and 8 daughters, the eldest of the lot is a boy of 20 years. The whole family is now a local sensation in the cable television network TLC.

18 kids! Okay, this may be nothing exceptional in the old times. But in today’s generation, what with the tremendous inflation and of course economic recession… it is just not possible to live a normal life with too many kids. Bearing in mind that each and every child not only needs guidance, love, understanding and attention. But they also need to go to schools, on top of the normal basic necessities. Okay, perhaps if it was Bill Gates’ family, that’s fine. I can clearly understand that he can surely provide a good future for this kids. With all his millions, he not only can give them the basic needs but also the luxuries that all these kids want.

I can’t help but wonder how this very big family is coping.
