If I were to say to you “octomom” chances are you would know exactly who I was talking about. Her name hasn’t been around in a while, but we all know she’s the mom who had 8 children. At one time. Yes, she was pregnant with EIGHT babies. She was thrown into the spotlight back in 2009 and Octomom Nadya Suleman became the person people would talk about. That mom who delivered 8 babies at once — taking her children total to 14. FOURTEEN is hard to wrap your head around, but that was her life.
She was almost a staple on TV talk shows like Dr. Phil where she would defend her decision to have as many children as she did. She was ridiculed on TV, on social media, out and about, magazine covers, and people were keeping their eyes on what she was doing. And how her 14 children were being cared for.
She was questioned over making an adult take, accepting government assistance to care for all her children. People debated the ethics of IVF and how many embryos should be implanted at one time. Well, it’s been eight years since she was first thrust into the spotlight and it’s been a while since we’ve really seen much from her — or all her kids.
