More about the Crazy Baby Lady

The story just keeps getting nuttier and nuttier. As I mentioned previously, I think the woman in California who recently had octuplets is clearly a nutcase. If you did not see the excerpt from Monday's upcoming Today Show, you missed seeing a train wreck in progress! I couldn't believe just how far this woman is from living in reality. The woman has now been identified as 33 year-old Nadya Suleman. After hearing even more information about this woman, I am convinced she is truly mentally incompetent. What is really scary is that she is a licensed psychiatric technician - it is clear she herself should be under psychiatric care!

I would love to know why any doctor would have done more fertility treatments on her. The same doctor that did her treatments this last time also was the doctor who helped her conceive her first six children. Initially he tried to convince her to only use 1 or 2 embryos. She said no, that she want to use six. According to her, she used all six because "those are my children, and that's what was available and I used them." Apparently, the doctor felt the woman knew more than he did. If he had been a responsible doctor, he would never have impregnated her this time or the previous 5 times. Why didn't the doctor consider that fact that he was impregnating an unemployed, single woman who was on and off disability?

That raises another question - how could this woman be on disability AND be pregnant? She initially began receiving worker's compensation in 1999 when involved in an accident at work. Over the past decade, she has received more than $200,000 in disability payments. I, for one, would love to know not only how she could be pregnant and physically disabled but also how she was able to afford the fertility treatments. As we know, her parents were also taking care of her family and her bills but I doubt that even such gullible parents would foot the bill for extra children she could not afford.

When asked by Ann Curry on the Today Show about how she planned to afford these extra 8 children, she responded by saying, "I know I'll be able to afford them when I'm done with my schooling. If I were just sitting down, watching TV and not being as determined as I am to succeed and provide a better future for my children, I believe that would be considered to a certainly degree selfish." What I would like to know is, how will she pay for them NOW. This is a woman who clearly has no grip on reality!

"I'm providing myself to my children," Nadya Suleman told NBC in her first interview. "I'm loving them unconditionally, accepting them unconditionally, everything I do. I'll stop my life for them and be present with them and hold them and be with them. And how many parents do that? I'm sure there are many that do, but many don't. And that's unfortunate. And that is selfish." Seems to me that this woman is the perfect definition of what selfishness is! She is only having these children because she was an only child and therefore she suffered and was "dysfunctional". Funny, I didn't realize that being an only child made you dysfunctional. She clearly thinks that spending time with them and holding them is all you need to care for children properly. I hate to burst her bubble but singing lullabies and hugging them isn't going to pay for the diapers, formula or baby furniture.

The most disturbing thing, in my opinion, is that when asked why she did this, she replied, "All I wanted was children. I wanted to be a mom. That's all I ever wanted in my life." Well I have some news for her - you already ARE a mom! You already had six children under the age of 7 at home who clearly are not being provided for adequately. Now you want to add 8 more children? Not only is that irresponsible but also immoral.

I think what most people are thinking is true - this is a crazy woman who is going to use these children to earn as much money as she can. She claims she won't take welfare or outside financial help but I would love to hear her explanation for asking Oprah Winfrey for $2 million to appear on her show. I want to know when the Department of Child Protective Services is going to step in and take these children away from this horrible woman. She clearly cannot provide for these children. I am glad the fertility doctor is now being probed and he should lose his license.

If you want to see more from the interview with Ann Curry, they will air the entire thing on the Today Show on Monday morning and also on Dateline Tuesday night at 10pm EST/9pm CST.

When he wrote this posting, I think she hadn't yet made the website. And I agree, most of the things she has said about charity, she has done the exact opposite. She said she would never accept charity. She gets SSI for 3 kids (one is for a child who is ADHD - since when is that a DISABILITY???) and $490 in food stamps - yet she claims those are not types of welfare! Maybe she needs a dictionary to look up the true definition of welfare.

The website to me is a crock - she wont take charity but I guess it is okay to beg for supplies and money online? At one point she mentioned a church was helping her (which would be charity!) but even that church has sent out a press release making sure people know she is NOT receiving aid from them whatsoever. Basically, this woman is just a fraud looking to make money off these children and be like her idol, Angelina Jolie.

The idea that this women HELPS psychiatric patients is beyond me - she should be getting help herself. She is addicted to babies!

Where is DCFS when you need them?? Please take these children away from her!! This is ABUSE!
