Response to The Straight Story (Original post)

19. I agree with Suze - here's my take (or story as it were) -

this post pulls my strings as you will see.

I was the oldest of seven. My parents could not even afford me, really.
As a child I had to arrange the potatoes by size, one each. Father the biggest. One pound of hamburger on Sundays, to be divided for all of us.

I could not go to college, I was taken out of school to go to work, and worked three jobs to help put food on the table. I was constantly needed to take care of the younger children. I had no life.

I think the children that are already here have to get their needs met, without diluting the available money to take care of additional children. A parent at home til the child/children are three is my personal criteria to meet. If you can't do that in financial comfort, don't have the children.

I also think that impoverished families have lots of other problems, health, emotional instability, and uncertainty in general.

Yup - Suze has this one right.
