While eight kids definitely keep her busy, Angela says having nine or even 10 isn't out of the question. "I would love more kids," she says. "We have never placed a number on our family. We've always just been open to having children." Her youngest child is almost 3, and Angela says in the past she's always had another baby by this point. "Usually by now I'm nursing somebody. I don't have one to nurse right now."

A large family comes with its own set of issues, but for Angela, the joys far outweigh the drama. "Being a mom of so many children, it can be stressful at times," she says. "I guess for some it would be a burden, but for myself, I feel this is my calling. I am living the life that I want to live. I would choose no other."
