Every parent knows what hard work it is to raise small children. So imagine what it’s like to take care of twins or triplets. It’s hard to understand how you can even survive!
Natalie Suleman, also known as Octomom, is the only mother in the United States to ever give birth to an octuplet. In 2009, she gave birth to six boys and two girls through IVF.
But the eight were not Natalie’s only children. When she gave birth to them, she already had six more children. Suddenly Natalie was a single mother of 14 children who had to live on state benefits just to survive. But the money was
not enough and she had to take drastic measures to survive.
In 2012, Natalie’s life was turning bad. She was a single mother with 14 small children, and she didn’t have a penny to spare. The situation was so difficult that she turned to the adult film industry just to be able to feed her children.
At the same time, Natalie was nicknamed “Octomom” after appearing on several television shows, including Dr. Phil, and Oprah Winfrey’s show.
It didn’t take long and rumors began to surface that Natalie was a bad mother and that the children were not in good health. People laughed at her online and there were parents who called her ‘disgusting’.
After a while, the welfare authorities visited her home. Rumors were that she spent allowances meant for her children on plastic surgery for herself. Natalie firmly claimed that these rumors are simply not true.
The turning point for Natalie came when she saw one of her daughters playing with her stripper clothes. Natalie realized that she could not continue to be a stripper and play in adult films while raising 14 children. She decided to
leave everything and start a new life. She said she would rather be homeless than have her children grow up with a stripper mother.
Fortunately, Natalie managed to get her life in order. Today she is a consultant and focuses on taking care of her children, giving them healthy food and a happy childhood.
Although life for a single mother of 14 children is not easy, Natalie said she wouldn’t change a thing.
“I will never say that I regret my children. They are my life”, she said.
