My wife and I have six unique and wonderful children. We also live, for the moment at least, in Appalachia. For those reasons alone the recent quote from televangelist Pat Robertson caught my attention:
"That’s the big problem, especially in Appalachia. They don’t know about birth control. They just keep having babies. You see a string of all these little ragamuffins, and not enough food to eat and so on, and it’s desperate poverty."
---A short-but-powerful post in defense of having/raising children, which ends up as a tribute to marriage itself. ¡Bravo!
