As the past week or two has unfolded, more
information has been eked out by the media.
There is a time line of sorts. We hear that
she and her husband split up in 2000 and
divorced last year 2007.
So that means she had her first treatment after
she and her husband had split up. And she has
had 6 children by treatments only, in that separation
time. And then after her divorce, she has the final
treatment. And her youngest, twins, were barely
a year old when she had the last treatment. AND
all of these children are only a year or so apart.
Now I realize that many people have children close
together. I, myself, is one of those people. I had 8
in 10 years with one set of twins. BUT I had a husband,
and he was the bread winner during those years. We
had homes big enough for those children. .
Yet, this woman, not only wanted children and continued
to seek more, as a single mom, with no job, which opens
a whole another box. Where did the income come from
to pay for these very expensive treatments. Who paid for
all of those? Her disability check? Where was the income
for the first 6? And now she has 14 without any job
insight. Even her mother is overwhelmed with this task.
Which by the way, she lives with her parents. Father left
for Iraq. Her mother is bailing too.
So there she is, mother of 14, no changing that. It is what
it is. But we got to question, how did she get that far?
Isn't there any background check, like for adoption? To
make sure these children coming into the world are safe?
Are going to be well taken care of? Does this mean that
a person who has lots of money for the treatments, can
just walk in, given the treatment and walk out, with a baby
9 months later? A sex offender? A baby auction person?
Can they all do this with no one checking? How do they
know if the woman is stable enough, and won't abuse the
child? Weren't they concerned about the father?
Why was a woman allowed to have these treatments, with
very small babies at home? Why was she allowed, when there
was not a home of her own? Why was she allowed after having
6 children in 6 years and the youngest just over a year? Why?
Why wasn't there a psycho sessions talked about before the
last treatment? Heck, why not after the second baby.
Now we get to the money part. I am not talking about the
money at the clinic. But who is going to pay for the support
of these children? Is the California law/policy still in place for
the husband who remains married after a wife has children by
another man, still responsible for those children born under the
marriage that is still in place? Meaning does the ex-husband,
who did not get a divorce for 7 years, is he responsible for
the support of the first 6 children? And what about the donor?
Will the state search for him, being there is so many children,
and he fathered them all. After all someone has to pay. Who?
Is the state of California, which is in so much trouble financially,
take on the task of supporting all these children? Will they take
measure to send out part of the children to be adopted? Will the
grandmother bail as she said, as she was way too overwhelmed?
Yes, there still a lot of questions here.
