I think you are going to need to be plugged into some good churches with benevolent funds. It’s hard enough to have one. Two would be such a blessing but so much more expensive.
three? yikes! do you think there might be a possibility of anyone giving you a baby shower?
if so, ask for a diaper shower. our church gave us a diaper shower with our 2nd daughter and we didn’t have to buy diapers for the first 6 months.

Subject: Budget101.com : Question about our increasing family size
Hello. We have learned that we are increasing our family size (expecting multiples. Just not sure how many as yet).
We already have a 2 year old. We are wondering what are some of the best ways to handle the expenses related to having more kids – all at once? 🙂 We got a great deal on a bed for our son today.
(He will be leaving his crib and moving into a “big boy” bed). We already have a couple of cribs for the new arrivals.
We have decided that the new arrivals will not be attending daycare anytime soon. Ridiculously expensive. Not happening.
Fortunately, we already have a minivan. We do need to get new carseats (not something to get used). We went out briefly looking at a few the other day.
Any other tips are welcome. We are positive there are at least two children coming this way. There may be three.
Thanks for your suggestions, hints, ideas and prayers.
