Family Size, Let God decide

Okay so it looks like the Duggars and the Bates have both stalled at 19, what is the largest fundie family. And yes I mean delivered by one mom. Not one of these I delivered 3 kids and then adopted 23, not that I don't think adoption is not real (just don't want to start that debate).

Here's an article about a family in Ukraine, Leonora and Yanosh Nameni, with 21 kids. According to Wikipedia, they're Apostolic and don't practice birth control. The article above also mentions that they live on a farm and don't watch TV, which sounds pretty "fundie" to me by our informal standards.

Wow, Michelle and Jimbob have a long way to go :o

I bet theyre sooooo jealous of all these people who had more than 30! But honestly, I don't know how they remember all of their children's names and birthdays.

I started a thread on that in the off-topic forum. That woman is incredibly irresponsible.

Susanna Wesley, nee Annesley was the 25th of 25 children. She went on the bear 19 children, nine of whom died as infants and one was smothered by a maid. Four of the infants who died were twins. I don't know if she had any twins that survived. Two of the children that survived were John and Charles, the founders of Methodism. She is often considered the Mother ofMethodism.

I grew up in a small country town in Australia (population about 2,500-3,000) and there was a family in the town which had 22 children. The husband died of a heart attack in his late fifties /early sixties and thereafter, there were no more children. As far as I remember, there was only one set of twins, and quite possibly, no television :lol:

My husband's best friend is one of 19; my brother in law is one of 17. No twins in either bunch. They are both New Zealanders as several families on that list seem to be!

there was that Russian lady who had like 64 kids

Some people believe that was false. It claims she has multiple sets of triplets, quads etc that survived long before NICU and medical interventions

When you think about it how is that even possible? When most women with mega families don't reach 20, that she would reach 60+??
