Have you ever read something in a newspaper or magazine, or watched something on TV, and you have felt a lightbulb go on --- right over your head? I watched Nadya Suleman being interviewed on the Today Show this morning. Nadya is the mom of six children and she just gave birth to eight more, making a total of 14 children. There has been some controversy about this Mom, given the fact that she is a single mother. I have been wondering why a woman who already has six children would want one more child, let alone eight more, if she is single and has no spouse to help her raise her children. And then, this morning as I watched her being interviewed on NBC, the lightbulb went on over my head. She is trying to emulate Angelina Jolie.
I'm just guessing of course, just pure speculation, but it looks to me as if she idolizes Angelina Jolie, even going so far as to have her face made over to look like her idol. Stranger things have happened, haven't they?
So now, there are these 14 little children, their Mom is bankrupt, they have no father and to all intents and purposes their Mom will be raising them on her own. In a way it's a good thing that the children all have each other. I always wanted to be part of a large family. What a wonderful feeling that would be. Obviously every one of these children will be loved, and that's the main thing. I hope the folks in their community find it in their hearts to help out whenever and wherever they can. Goodness! 14 children!
NB: Since I first did this post this morning, there have now been quite a few websites where other people have noticed the same resemblance that I did. It just seemed very obvious to me during the initial interview this morning that the resemblance was uncanny.
