I hope to be in your shoes eventually but dh isn't interested in having another bio-kid. We have four kids between us and I would love an "ours".

Hi there! We're a family of 8 (me, DH, and 6 boys) and hopefully more in the future. We're not exactly TTC at this point, but are open to conceiving whenever it happens. Our youngest is only 12 months old, and is nursing frequently, so my cycles are little wonky and I don't expect to get pregnant for awhile. Have you checked out the Moms of Many group here? You'll meet others in the same situation there too.

Good luck with TTC!

Thanks!  Is there a Large Family Tribe?

Totally missed the reference to the Mom of Many thread.    Can you link me?

We are open to as many more as we get, whenever, so not actively ttc but it may be soon. Just got my cycles back and our youngest is 14mo.
