    Octuplet mom spurns nurses' free baby care offer

    Associated Press
    Posted: 02/27/2009 04:55:04 PM PST

    LOS ANGELES — The founder of a nonprofit nurses' group says the California mother of octuplets born last month allowed an offer of free, 24-hour care for the infants and six older children to lapse.

    Linda Conforti-West, founder of Angels in Waiting, said today that Nadya Suleman appeared to lose interest in the group's proposal when she was told last week that a reality show and a biweekly press conference on the babies' condition was out of the question due to their fragile immune systems.

    They guesstimate the hospital tab the good tax paying citizens of California will be hit for stands at around 5 million dollars.

    Odd how when reality bumps into "reality TV" things just seem different.

    She always did it for herself. She said, “That was always a dream of mine, to have a large family, a huge family, and I just longed for certain connections and attachments with another person that I really lacked, I believe, growing up.” She couldn't find 'connections' or 'attachments' with adults, so she had to manufacture a bunch of babies. She's like a person with 50 cats and no friends, but in this case she has humans.

    Isn't this great? Suleman is unmarried, unemployed, lives with her parents and receives food stamps and other government assistance. She even had depression and suicidal thoughts while starting her "family." I fear for her kids. If she gets depressed or the court threatens to take them away, she might turn into Andrea Yates.

    Hopefully, she makes all kinds of money from this so she can pay those hospital bills. She chose this, so I certainly don't have any sympathy for her.

    I used to have 50 cats, then I got out of the ranching business due to over regulation by the federal government.
