In 2009, an uncommon event captured people’s attention: Nadya Suleman, a Californian, became the mother of eight babies born at the same time and eventually managed to overcome this ordeal.”
“Nadya was nicknamed ‘the mother of eight’ and ‘supermom,’ but her life was marked by many challenging moments. It’s important to note that before the birth of the eight children, Suleman had already raised six children, including twins. The reasons that led this 33-year-old woman to undertake such extreme motherhood are difficult to comprehend, especially since she did not have a partner.”
In one way or another, one of the doctors agreed to perform an astonishing in vitro fertilization, during which twelve viable embryos were implanted into the uterus at once, instead of the 2 to 3 typically recommended by medical protocols. Later, this courageous doctor lost their license, but Nadya became a Guinness World Record holder.”
“Fact! The mystery of paternity remains unresolved. Nadya mentioned the name David Solomon, but family members did not confirm this information. Then, a certain Dennis Bodine appeared, claiming to be a donor, but Suleman accused him of lying.”
Suleman went through tough times: government assistance was insufficient, as were her resources. She received support from neighbors and acquaintances, and initially, the family generated income by participating in a reality TV show about their extraordinary life. Nadya accepted all offers to participate in various projects, but over time, these opportunities became scarce.”
Suleman’s perception by society became ambiguous. It turned out she had engaged in explicit and questionable photo shoots, as well as dancing in bars to support her family, at least according to her. She was accused of spending money irrationally on her personal appearance instead of supporting her children, and of raising her children inappropriately. The family home was auctioned off due to a one million dollar debt. Suleman went through periods of depression and neurosis, underwent rehabilitation, and eventually managed to restore her reputation.”
According to some sources, in her hometown, the mother of this large family obtained a medical degree and now works with autistic individuals, also helping women who have faced difficulties in their lives to regain balance. Today, Suleman’s eldest son is nineteen years old, and the youngest is eight.
From time to time, Nadya shares photos with her numerous children, and in all the pictures, both girls and boys appear happy. This suggests that the family situation is currently very positive, and 44-year-old Nadya is admirably managing her motherly responsibilities. Additionally, she manages to take care of herself and stay in excellent physical shape.”
