This week we've been talking about family planning and what influences parents when it comes to having children. We asked you to tell us about your families and what considerations you've made about how many kids to have.

Today we hear from two of our listeners who have made very difference decisions about their family.

Corinne Vander Ploeg is a stay at home mother of two children who is in the process of adopting two more. Lucia Briones is the marketing director for the Texas Army National Guard. She doesn’t have children yet, but plans on only having one.

First parents make you nuts, then your kids do. I am just trying to carry on a family tradition... What have I done?!
