Who cares?

All this news coverage about the octuplets, thier mom, the doctor. Come on. Who cares anymore. It was unethical of the doc to put that many embryos in at once, it was unmoral of the mother to even attempt another pregnancy given her current situation. Pretty simple.

I'm all for large families. I want to have one myself. However, if I were a single mom with NO job, I'd stop at what I have until I was in a better financial situation. I'm not saying one needs to have a surplus of money. I'm just saying that a job would help.

This leads me to another thought on this. I've heard so many people wonder how she gets enough one on one time with all of them. Plain and simple, she doesn't, according to "normal" standards anyway. That's not a bad thing though. We can all create one on one time with our children thoughout the day. We don't have to go somewhere special. (though that can be fun and isn't a bad thing) I can have a moment with my two year old when my other boys are playing in the same room. We can sit and read a book, or just snuggle for a moment. It's all in how you do it. Do you give them eye contact? Do you stop what YOU are doing and focus on them? I'd venture to say that there are many only children who don't get enough attention from their parents. Think about it.

Anyway, even though I don't agree with what this octomom(as she's being called) did, I still think she deserves our prayers. I especially believe that those babies deserve our prayers as they are here, on this earth, and deserve a fair shot.

Amen! I am getting tired of even the talk about this woman. Although I do wish her and her children well.

I completely agree.

(although i must also add that i hate the term "octomom" it makes her sound like some kind of arch nemesis in a comic books)
