She grew up as an usually kid as great as had regularly dreamed of carrying a vast family. Reporters, pundits as great as bloggers have called her insane as great as selfish, as she already has 6 young kids underneath a age of 7 during home.

Between the Two Broods, a Mt. Whitney of Dirty Pampers People who visit the fan site of "America's Favorite Family," the Duggars, who are planning their 20th child, are generally supportive. But when someone criticizes the Duggars, out come the claws of their defenders--and references to Octomom. "Now I'm confused," writes one. "You belittle a married couple who has a large family yet you don't have the same scorn for Nadya Suleman? Both Michelle and Nadya are women who choose to have many children, one through marriage and many pregnancies, one as a single parent and through a few pregnancies. You belittle Michelle and Jim Bob because they put it in God's hand family size and have 19 kids, yet my husband and I chose to do the same thing, resulting in one." The comeback: "Speaking of showing ignorance, I think you just shown yours. So what are you trying to say, because Nadya Suleman had IVF treatments that her children aren't a 'blessing from God?' I don't think God cares how a child is conceived, if it has life, breathe God's air. It is still a child of God and he will bless and welcome that child with open arms same as he does children that were conceive though sex. Matter of fact, it took a male sparm and female egg to make Nadya's children." Hey, Joe No. 1, we need another love infusion. (18 Kids and Counting)
