  • And she is a single mother. What is wrong with this picture? 14 children AND single living with her parents in her 30's. Rather irresponsible. Who is footing that bill? The Government?

    No. It is not amazing. This woman is a breeder. So, she can push out babies, that is the easy part. Can a single mother living with her parents care for 14 children adequately? I would say no.

  • These children are at a higher risk of abuse and neglect. 14 is way too many children.
