'We see children as a blessing'

The McDonald and Sandford families from the USA are just two in a growing community of people who are part of the 'Quiverfull' movement.

Popular among conservative evangelical Christians, the movement believes that receiving children is a blessing from God, and therefore they eschew all forms of birth control.

Between them the two families have 19 children.

Pastor James McDonald introduces his children.
