This is me. I was brought up to believe that children are a blessing from the Lord. Most, if not all of us, would definitely feel blessed if we received a raise at work, or a new car, but limit children, when all three are to be considered blessings.

I am not under the illusion that it will be easy. I'm sure raising a child to love God and others in spite of our selfish nature will be quite difficult, but I see a lot of love when I interact with large families. And choosing to let God "plan" our family doesn't automatically mean that we will have a large family, but that we will be happy with what He gives us. I do also like the idea of adoption too, but we'll see.
