I wholeheartedly second that.
Today I have nothing but admiration for large families like this and others who resolved to not be intimidated by the overpopulation fear-mongering so prevalent near the end of the baby boom, which coincided with my own formative years.
My family and I, and people of my generation would frequently mock our Catholic and Mormon neighbors for "endangering the world" by their "reckless incontinence".
A later, more honest reading of the Bible, and Julian Simon's The Ultimate Resource, finally persuaded me that much of the overpopulation fears that I was taught in my youth were unfounded.
Had I known this earlier I'd have been much more motivated to settle down and raise a sizable family of my own. Sadly, Satan won many great victories against my family and my culture at that time.
