Octuplets Mom's First Interview

Here's the interview everyone's been waiting for: Nadya Suleman, the Octuplets' mom went straight from the hospital to an interview with NBC's Ann Curry:

The mother of octuplets born last week in Bellflower told NBC News she wanted to have a "huge family" because she longed for personal connections she felt she lacked in her childhood.

"I just longed for certain connections and attachments with another person that I -- I really lacked, I believe, growing up," Nadya Suleman said in an interview today with NBC's Ann Curry. "Reflecting back on my childhood, I know it wasn't functional. It was pretty -- pretty dysfunctional, and whose isn't?"

I've been thinking about this family ever since it hit the news about this girl having so many children. Like so many other people, it makes me sad to think what kind of life these children will have growing up. It also makes me really upset that there are people out there like myself who can't have children and would REALLY love to be able to, and see that this girl went out and had so many children that she obviously can't take care of. I know this is aweful to say, but I wish she would adopt alot of them out to people...GOOD PEOPLE..who really want children and can't physically have them. At least she would be giving them a better life than she is able to give them. I know those are her children, and I am sure that she loves them as a mother should, but I honestly think that she should love them enough to give them a better life with a family who can afford to give them EVERYTHING that they need! I feel sorry for the children, as they didn't ask to be brought into the world this way. And I pray that the mother does the right thing by them!!!

Let me summarize most people's primary problem with this woman.

Cost of a 52 pack of diapers from Toys R Us. 16.99

if one baby uses one diaper per day (god willing) that puts you out to about halfway through the week

add in food, time, utilities, the fact that you need a job to make the money.

also the fact that by all appearances she doesn't have 14 hands

and... we've discovered the problem.
