    • I seriously do not understand this. The woman who just gave birth to the octuplets already had six kids.

    • If she wanted to have 10 or 20 kids...that’s her personal choice...maybe she wanted more twins or even triplets out of the deal...and God blessed her!

    • Family: Octuplets’ mother has 6 other children, when I heard this today I was amazed. Also, there is no mention of a husband or man.  It’s her personal choice, yes, but just my opinion it’s ridiculous to have this treatment done when you already have 6 children, I think the treatment is starting to be abused.

    • The article said her husband is a contract worker (whatever that is) and is going back to Iraq.  I also heard on the news this morning that he is involved with the Iraqi Military. I am not sure if that means he is not a US Citizens or not.

    • I am not the one to judge, but it does seem to me that someone has lost their mind!! I can see carrying on the family name but this is nuts!
      Government help?  TV series? building an army? Who knows, but as said before the babies are here and we can only pray that they will be healthy and have the nutrition they need to survive.

    • There are so many issues here, I don't know where to start. Yes, Ms Kay, it is her choice to have as many as she wants. But, if you already have 6, obviously fertility is not an issue and-you've already got 6! (and I see you keep editing your answer!:))

      The free stuff for them is absolute BS-they chose to take on this responsibility, they knew they were having multiple kids on top of the already existing 6, so essentially they are looking for welfare.

      AND-yes, I hope the best for the babies, they are innocent. But anyone knows, the more babies there are, the more risks they face. And what happens to the other 6 when mom and granny are busy attending to the special needs of the octuplets?

      None of us can say how these children will be affected when we don’t know anything about them....other than from what we read!

    • Thanks, BB. I'm not sure why I am the target of the "why do you feel this way," post when nearly every woman on here says the woman is nuts-and which is a comment I myself did not make.

    • Cindylou I'm feeling what you 're saying it makes no sense when you already have 6 and its a struggle why add more fuel to the fire.
      Yes everyone has a right to have as many babies as they want but!!!
      Its not being fair to society who would eventually have to help care for all her children through our tax dollars that help pay for the government assistance programs offered in this country.

    • This morning, I also was initially shocked to hear that the mother has 6 children already.  Was it specified that the parents were financially unable to care for the children?  How can it be questioned the amount of love and attention the parents can give?  This is an unconditional relationship where love and attention should not be a question.  Just like they love 6, they can give love to another 8 of their own.  Although I did not grow up in such a large family, (it was only  mys sis & I), I do have 6.  I know that when I had the 2nd one, I was almost petrified to take them both out - at the SAME time.  But, you make adjustments and make your life work for YOU.  My husband comes from a family of 12 kids and they are all alive and well, and some of the best, well-adjusted and confident people you ever want to meet.  My mother-in-law is still the one the have to answer to and there is absolutely no evidence that one is preferred over another or that any one of them got the short end of the stick.  My in-laws were not raised in this country, rather, in the turbulent West Bank where much of their daily supplies came from the Red Crescent.  I only hear stories of happiness and how they all shared 3 eggs for breakfast, along with other foods, of course, but it’s a standing lesson in our house about wasting food, etc.

      One of the miracles the prophet Jesus performed was changing water into wine.  Just something to think about it if you want.

    • Did she have to pass some type of evaluation before having the fertility treatments?? I am just curious why the doctors felt it was ok to do this, given the fact that she already had 6 children.

    • Well, even if she WAS having problems getting pregnant (fertility does drop off at a certain point)....with 6 already - why would a doctor provide fertility treatments. ??

    • Personally can't understand it on many levels – but in the UK she wouldn't have been given fertility treatment even if she has paid private – when you go for fertility treatment you have to have a psychiatric evaluation – it sounds like she would have failed on a number of accounts...
      I think she will have hassle when they are small and god help her when they hit teenage years – all those hormones and door slamming and looks...... I wonder if she gets some form of medication after the fertility drugs to help not go out of her mind ha ha – I would have hit the bottle big time

    • I’m not saying it was right or wrong, I am just curious about the situation and circumstances. My mother had 10 siblings and no one ever felt left out or neglected, I don’t think that having this many children is necessarily wrong. I am simply curious about what the doctors were thinking.

    • It’s in the news and it’s a woman/family issue. We have the right to discuss whatever we want.  

      And wasn't there just a huge blog about respecting other bloggers' opinions?  I told you I respected yours, please show the same courtesy, even while you do not agree.

      And Robin, I have nothing against big families, I was married to the youngest of 7. My ??? is about the need for fertility drugs to have that many more when there is already a large number.
