Christina Dodd Dips Deep in the Family History

My great-uncle was born early in the twentieth century in the Canadian Rockies above Lake Louise in British Columbia. The area was primitive, with long, dark winters, and the proof of that is — my great-uncle is the twenty-third child born to his parents. Before you say about his mother, “That poor woman,” listen to this — my uncle’s best friend was his adopted younger brother.

That’s right, the family adopted another child to make the family an even two dozen.

Do you have any mind-blowing large family stories? Or, heck, any mind-blowing large families?
