Countless women have spent their lives dreaming of raising a large family one day. In fact, some would-be ‘big family’ moms don’t even bat an eye at one day raising 5, 6, or even 7 children.

Even so, that number falls incredibly shy of the number of kiddos Courtney Rogers is raising.

Courtney has welcomed no less than 11 children into this world.

And that number is just so far.

That’s enough to make most moms’ heads explode just thinking about it.

According to her, she’s nowhere close to finished yet.

The super mommy says she hopes to welcome a 14th baby into the world one day. Courtney started her family when she married her husband, Pastor Chris, in October 2008.

“We want to have more if we can,’ said Courtney. ‘We want to have 12 children, a family of 14 even,” she told The Sun.

Courtney hasn’t spent a single year of her married life without being pregnant.

The couple has six boys and five girls and she hasn’t gone more than nine months without being pregnant since she married.

The Rogers, who met at a church camp in Georgia in 2007, live on a 12-acres farm where they home school their children and foot a $1,200 grocery bill each month.

As most unusual situations do, Courtney says her family’s lifestyle is subject t0 criticism.

“The people who ask how I can give all my kids enough attention are usually those who send their kids off to school,” she explained. “I do not understand their logic when I am around my kids 24 hours a day.”

Sadly, many people judge Courtney long before they ever hear her story.

“We’ve also had a few rude encounters. From unpleasant stares to statements like, ‘Did you have them all with the same partner?!’ or ‘Seven kids? That’s terrible!'” she told Love What Matters.

Courtney says her children get to enjoy the flexible and enriched learning experience of enjoying nature in between lessons rather than sitting still for hours in a classroom.

When Courtney isn’t teaching her own kids, she also teaches Sunday school at church for local children.

Courtney isn’t pretending that it’s all a breeze.

“Of course managing so many littles has its challenges. Even though they may drive me batty at times I can’t imagine being happy doing anything else. Some of the challenges are having multiple babies in diapers, finding more than one sitter at a time, having to book more than one hotel room, driving and parking a 15-passenger van, washing tons of laundry, always cleaning up messes, etc., etc.,” she tells

“Oh! And did I mention the staring and comments we get out in public? The ‘You must have your hands full’ comments when I’m out with just two or three of the children are always amusing. If they only knew! Once when I was out with two of my girls, someone asked if I was going to try for a boy. I had to break the news to her I already had six boys.”

And guess what? That number just may change with one of Courtney’s latest announcements.

That’s right! Courtney recently announced that she’s carrying baby number 12 now!

If nothing else, the Rogers family is living proof that dreams really can come true.
