As for Nadya Suleman, the "Octomom" with 8 newborns, and 6 other children. Single parent, mother of 14 children, finally, reality is setting in.
‘Reality is hitting me.’ She said because the babies have been cared for by the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), she feels like she’s kind of been on a temporary vacation because all these nurses were doing such wonderful work.
Suleman was panicked because she was given a list from the hospital that is several pages long, and it is labeled
A Nursing Care Plan
Very soon, within a week, at least one of these babies is ready to come home and probably two or three. She said three of them are bottle feeding at this point. But there is a list of requirements that have to be met before they’re willing to release these babies into her care.
The extensive list concerns housing and safety. The hospital is saying they will not release these babies until she can demonstrate that she has a safe, secure environment to take them home to.
Clearly, Octomom did not think this through. There are already nine people living in a 3 bedroom house. She has 8 infants to care for, does not have her own place to live, not a space big enough to house her tribe/family of 15.
If the fertility specialist did not have the sense or medical ethics to review or question the sanity of a single Mother who already had 6 children, 3 with special needs, having 14 children, at least Children's protective services & the medical staff do. They are requiring Octomom to show them she has it together. Finally some sanity injected into this story.
