What would you do if you were the octuplets mom?

Just curious!!!

I am a former CPS caseworker and would realize that there is a good chance my children would be removed and I would lose custody........ so as hard as it might be, I would place them up for adoption.

I would make it an OPEN adoption - but the adoptive parents would 100% be the parents. I would want to see them once a year and get pictures. I would probably only choose adoptive parents who already have an open adoption (adopted one kid) who can demostrate that they will follow through with the open adoption agreement and not break off all ties.

I would adopt them out in sets of two's, well I don't know maybe a few singles.

Just my 2 cents.

  • I wouldn't have been dumb enough to have octuplets in the first place. If I did opt to do it I would have planned to take care of them myself.

  • I don't know that I'd adopt out. Can I reverse this a bit - if I were the grandmother I'd tell the mom that she could continue living with me only if she gets her tubes tied with me in the o r as she goes under anesthe plus she'd have to get immediate psychiatric counselling to continue living with me and also I'd control her finances.

  • in the first place.I would have not had all those kids. I think she is using these kids for Celebrity. Did you also see her lips? they have done and hair is black. Look like someone you seen in the movies? Angelina Jolie
    This woman is crazy.

  • It is a hard question. I'd love them all and desperately want to keep them all and love and care for them all. On the other hand, if I did not have the financial means, I'd have to make a hard decision, and with so many other children, and wanting to be fair and a good mother to all, I'd reluctantly have to foster some out, It hurts to even think of doing this, though.

  • OP here ---

    You misunderstood me here. As of right now she is NOT losing custody of her kids.

    But, I saw the pics of inside her house, and I know its a very real possiblity. How is she going to get cribs, diapers, etc etc etc etc.?

    I used to work for CPS. Didn't last there long, but long enough to see kids removed because of situations that weren't as bad as this one..........

  • CPS needs to focus on chidren who are being abused and neglected. Please concentrate on abused children and let that mom raise her own children.
