'Octomom' sells photos with kids at yard sale

Shoppers in need of eight little devil Halloween costumes were in luck this weekend, as Nadya "Octomom" Suleman held a yard sale at her La Habra, Calif., home.

According to the Orange County Register, about 150 people descended upon her residence by 10:30 a.m. Saturday. The goodies up for grabs included a nursing bra autographed by Suleman and the couch she was perched upon when she learned she was pregnant with octuplets.

A photo with Suleman could be had for $10, and for $100, her eight little ones would join in. The paper reports that one woman paid $25 for two baby outfits and a photo while another forked over $85 for a refrigerator that once stored baby formula. A Suleman-signed Kobe Bryant jersey fetched a whopping $125.

"It's just a matter of survival: Food, shelter and clothing," 35-year-old Suleman  told the Orange County Register of her reason for the event. "There are financial troubles."

    What is done is done.
    These kids need help and positive support in order to become responsible citizens.
    They need our support but maybe it is preferable to continue to insult their mom and build anger in them?
    I disagree with the mom behavior but it is time to look forward for the best interest of everybody.

    CPS will not step in until one of those kids is badly hurt or accidentally killed. And don't be surprised if Nadia herself flips and does it; but still she won't be to blame; CPS will. Face it, the woman is a user and a loser! This is all her fault; she made the choice and she needs to resolve it, Stop blaming everyone else and put the blame where it belongs, She is already commiting child abuse by not taking care of her kids, Remove them and give them to people who desperately pray for a child but can't have one!

    I agree with those that say they feel sorry for the kids and that they shouldn't do without but their mother has refused the aid that is available from the state. She has on several occasions said that she won't take any form of welfare. SHE is the one endangering the kids when there is a ready solution at her disposal. She is ready to hawk their pictures, sell their story, be on a reality show, accept handouts from private citizens but she won't take the steps to feed her children through welfare? I say take the kids away from her if she won't provide for them. They would have a better life even if they had to be split up to be adopted than to be left for one more day in Octomom's care!

    Hey People!

    Don't forget that there are kids involved. How many times does this lady need her nose rubbed into her mistakes?

    While all of you are complaining about her and spending your time hating why don't you donate some money. $1.00 ? These kids need a home. She loves her children weather we agree with it or not. I think if each person donated $1.00 who complained she would be able to save her home. I think it is pretty sad when people want to see a mother and her children homeless.
    It is to late, she can't go back and change so why not embrace it!

    What galls me is that 3 of her first 6 children have some form of autism and STILL, she has 8 more children with the same genetic father? I'm the mother of one child on the autism spectrum and that requires a lot of devotion to give the child a good start in life All this is SO unfair to those 3 special needs children and what I wonder is how many of the new 8 will have special needs? This woman can't possibly be able to mother these kids properly.

      Have you ever thought that maybe she wanted to give her other children a chance to survive? The 8 that were born were of remaining embryos of the other in vitros. If she didn't do that, the embyros would've just died.

    Based on the majority of comments here, you would think eugenics was making a comeback in America. That's the real goal behind the founding of pp anyway. Now people want to stop others from utilizing technology to conceive? Don't get me wrong, she's a frightening IDIOT, but why is this okay for one woman, but not okay for another? And when the embryos "stick" you want to tell some women how many they are allowed to keep, but eliminate this one and that one? Think about what you are suggesting...

    Seriously this chick ticks me off. She is the exact opposite of what hard working people stand for and abhor. She sought to capitalize off of her children, but it backfired when taxpayers realized that they would foot the bill. I believe that every child is a blessing, but if you know that you have no resources to support them then it becomes another story. I have no sympathy for her, sad that the kids may suffer, but this hefier has had cosmetic work done and hopes to gain by telling a sob story. Puleese. She was wrong for doing this to innocent children. I hate this trick, but feel for her children because thier mammy is a selfish wanna be tv mom reality star hopeful.

    The biggest problem I see is that even if she could find a job, she couldn't afford to pay someone to watch all 14 of her kids while she worked. She probably makes more on welfare than she ever could by working if you consider the costs associated with childcare.

    The obsession with having so many kids that she couldn't hope to take care of should be considered a mental illness in my opinion. Why aren't the children being taken away to be placed with people who are better suited to give them a normal life? I believe that the city/county/state should go after the doctor fo any legal costs associated with child custody actions against this family because the doc was extremely negligent in going through with this.

Why doesn't she do the right thing and give these kids up for adoption to people that can certainly provide a better life than she can.

      She gets support from the state for her disabled kids and then she gets welfare, the longer she keeps these kids the more troubled they are going to be, the humilation these kids are going to go thru the rest of their lives because there mother as mental issues and wanted more than she could handle. I think it's a joke, she doesn't love these kids she uses them for media attention, she is exploiting her kids by having complete strangers enter her home to take pictures with her kids, come on if that isn't wrong i don't know what is. I think that since taxpayers are taking care of her kids anyway lets put them some place where they can get proper care and the proper love they need and deserve.

    Really? To the second comment, yep.. it's hard being a single parent, but unlike some single parents she chose her fate. I am sure she was told that there was a high risk of having multiples, so she should have been financially prepared for the task. Instead she decided to take advantage of the fact that people pay BIG MONEY if you have large family. I am in college, I am not financially ready for a big family but what I am learning from Suleman is that if I have a ton of kids right now, it can probably pay for my college tuition right?

    I agree 14 children are more than a handful especially alone. However, I have to admire this womans faith, desire and determination to have a large family. It's definetly against the odds, but God has allowed for it, so I have to believe it is for a reason. Where there is love there is hope, I don't see a shortage in this, and material stuff will always be just stuff. There are plenty of children who have a mother who did not want them and spoiled them with materials, other than love. I will pray for you and your children. Blessed is those who have nothing..........

    If you need to start selling photos of your children because they are an "exhibit" doesn't that mean that you shouldn't have had them in the first place.

    As a first time parent, I do understand how overwhelming the changes can be. HOWEVER, my daughter isn't a circus act and I wouldn't ever want to do things for others to consider that. I HAVE made some pretty crappy choices in my life but they were all before my daughter was born (January 2009).

And who cares if she's selling pics or signing bras? At least she was smart enough to make some money (of sorts).

    As for her children, as they grow older they will see that mom did whatever it took for them to survive just as most of us know that of our parent(s). As long as she's loves her children unconditionally & is always there for them to lean on..isn't that what makes a good mom (by any standard)?

She isn't trash and doesn't need to treat herself or her children that way. Anyone can kick someone when they're down and many people on here glee over poking at others. So many of the great people who have graced our planet have made numerous mistakes (even worse than what she has done). If they had this crowd of nay sayers rooting them on then they never would have pushed past their failures.

    She has made some seriously bad choices. Now she needs to gather up her self esteem and make the most of where she is at for herself and for her children. She needs to shake off her poverty mentality and go out there and make some real money for her children. She needs to get a good manager that will help her to make money with some class.

  102. Reponsibility Rules!

    While it is important for this family to be able to support itself, it appears that it may be more constructive to assist the parent in developing self-supporting behaviors and lifestyle. Purchasing her belongings for more than their street value and continuing media coverage of her behavior provide positive reinforcement of her lack of ability to be responsible and self sufficient. Many single mothers of multiple children have obtained education and ultimately employment which provides adequately for their families. There can be a lot of pride developed through that course of action and it removes the family from of public assistance (or lessens that demand).

Is it all her fault, no, The facility in which she went to, to get pregnant should absolutely be held accountable. They also knowingly did all this with the info on hand that she could not possibly support these kids long term. I mean, think about it, at some point she will have to go to work, how can you work a full time job when you have 14 kids to try and take care of? You can't. Not with out help, there are a lot of moms out there that have raised a baseball team, but they had the help of their family, and most had fathers in the pictures. This is just insane, and she needs help. How can you even defend a woman who had a ton of money handed to her for help, and used it on breast implants and botox?!

    Whatever bad happens to these kids will be the octomom's fault. Blame her. The way to deter this kind of child abuse, is to set an example by putting the kids into foster homes. We don't need any more foster children from overseas... just expedite giving out the children right after birth. Once budding octomoms see what happens to the kids, they'll quickly change their minds about becoming baby factories. No, I don't feel sorry for these children... the mother ruined their lives.

Granted, I don't think many of you understand because of your ignorance, but take it from someone who was a foster care child, it is a horrible thing to wish on anyone!

    For what she did, it should be classified as a crime and appropriate laws passed so that such stupidity does not happen again.

    There are people that want children, can afford to take care of the children, will have the children's best interest and future at heart, however, for whatever reason are not able to conceive with or without help. then you have women like Octomom having children like it's the thing to do. she had the nerve to be artificially pregnated while unemployed, living off of the system with her other children. and her mother is already helping to raise the other children she had before she had 8 more. why is society and the media glorifying this type of irresponsible behavior octomom is no different from the girls and women that live in the projects with a bunch of kids they aren't raising and can not afford feed or clothe without government assistance. and looking for a way to make a fast buck without any future plans or plans for the future. I'm not talking about the people that are using govt assistance as a temporary means while taking advantage of the opportunity to further ur education 4 a better life

    Just goes to show how incompetent the government in California really is. If this was any other woman these kids would have been taken from the home a long time ago. As a single mother of 14 there is NO WAY she can possibly be giving each one of these kids the love and attention that they each deserve and demand. Even if she spent one hour with each child, she would not be able to do everything that she needs to do as a single parent in a 24 hour period, including sleep.

    I don't feel sorry for this woman, nor do I feel she should be allowed welfare money or benefits. She not only chose to have all these children, but she did so by spending a ton of money to have them artificially. She KNEW what she was doing, knowing that she had no job, no man, no education, nothing, and how the hell was she going to support them after she completed school and could enter the job market? It would cost more for her to have someone take care of her children while she worked then what she would actually make!

    Ignorance is not an excuse for what this woman has done with her life and that of her children. They should be taken away from her and adopted out to good families that can properly raise these kids, and give them a good home, and life with the attention that they EACH deserve. And she needs to have a hysterectomy so she can NEVER have another kid again.

      Pretty sure that neglect is a form of abuse, as is being in an environment not suitable for said children. Facts are she cannot possibly take care of all of these kids the way they need to be taken care of. Also, the fact that she can not support them, and is selling pictures of her and her babies for profit, should tell the tale. If you think this situation is at all ok and that she should be allowed to continue down this very wrong road, and continue to let these kids be brought up in such a way, then it is your ignorance (among many others I am sure) that is allowing this madness to continue.

      There's no evidence that kids need individual attention. It is possible for Nadya to pay attention to multiple children simultaneously. Furthermore, children get a lot from spending time with each other. I know my daughter gets a lot out of daycare, more from the other kids than from the teachers. She picks up more skills there than at home, where most of the time she is getting the undivided attention of at least one, sometimes two or more parents and grandparents. Speaking of grandparents, I'm pretty sure Nadya's mother helps out with the kids.

      In fairness, she didn't expect octuplets when she got pregnant via artificial insemination. The doctor implanted six embryos, assuming only one or two would take, because that is what had happened before. Instead, all six thrived, and two split into identical twins. That being said, implanting six embryos into a woman under 35 with six other kids was pretty irresponsible of the doctor!

    This woman has been in the media repeatedly and has has an image of her created by the media.Even the nickname "octomom" definitely has an effect on her personal life,she definitely deserves a chance to capitalize on the image that she has been given and I believe we should reach out to her as best as we can.

    In 1997 the McCaughey septuplets got a free 5500 square foot house, free van, free full scholarships to any college in Iowa when the kids graduate from HS, free diapers for the first two years, and a call from the president. Octomom was born too late to pull off shenanigans like this.

      Cuz we all know Wikipedia is the source of accurate information ...

      That being said, please bear in mind that the McCaughey's did not use IVF and thus choose to implant themselves with 6 babies. That's the difference between Octomom and most other moms of high-order multiples. Most other high-order multiples come from fertility drugs – clomid, etc. – and you are told that the risk of high order multiples is "negligible – a very low possibility." Most women who take these drugs don't ovulate on their own anyways – so "hyper ovulation" is not something we worry about. Every woman I've know who has had to undergo fertility treatments is told that multiples are usually twins or triplets. It's a possibility to have more, but very unlikely. The many women I've know who have gone through IVF have had responsible dr's who refuse to implant more than 2 embryos at a time for that very reason ...

      This woman's whole life has been about manipulating people into doing what she wants, even at the risk of their own professional reputations. Her Dr. should be punished for allowing this to happen.

      The saddest part of her whole story are these innocent babies. How awful for them to have to grow up in such conditions – being used for money the way they are (and were always, always intended to be). She claims to be such a good mom – then follow the lead of the Dilleys, the McCaugheys and the many other high-order multiples families who do NOT seek out media attention and prefer to keep their kids' lives as normal as possible. Octomom's kids will never know what a normal life is ... selling pictures of her babies? That makes me want to vomit. As a mother, I protect my children, not exploit them. She's disgusting.

      I once read somewhere that some countries in Europe have a law that a doctor cannot implant more than two embryos at a time. I think the doctor should be reprimanded.
      I think the information on Wikipedia is actually rather accurate. I would be willing to support a family which did not intentionally provoke a "litter" of children.
      Kate Gosselin and Nadya Soleman both disgust me. They spend all their money on cosmetic procedures and exploit the children for personal gain.
      However I am really fascinated by the Duggar family. They have a reality show, but not as a result of a motive to exploit the children. They are a hard working, supportive family with a strong foundation.
      Irresponsible, selfish parents should not be allowed to breed.

Eliminate the right to choose (because women should not be able to control their bodies), but who is going to pay now for these kids? I'll tell you, it will be you and me.

So, if she was honest and hardworking, why didn't she spend that money on the 6 she had instead of taking government assistance for them?

    Anyone with any sense at all predicted this. This woman took a risk thinking these children would be her claim to fame and wealth. I feel bad for the children who will have to suffer because of this fame chaser.

    The question now is, how long will it be before the tax payers of California are supporting her poorly planned family, and how long will it be before these children are taken away and put in homes with responsible adults in charge?

      Welfare reform is here. 1996 here in KY. Women/Families have to work, volunteer, or go to school at least 20 hours a week, every week in order to be eligible for cash benefits. Same with the food benefits. If you are an adult with no minor dependents than you too are required to work, volunteer in order to get those benefits. However, right now with the economy in the crapper, that has been set aside until it improves. There are not many jobs to have and Kentucky is far from a rich state.

    How was she planning to house, feed and clothe them when she decided to get pregnant? If she hadn't gotten famous, she wouldn't even be able to sell this stuff for more than at any other yard sale price. I'm truly surprised she isn't in a government housing unit yet. Just give it some time. I'm very hopeful that her parents don't bail her out. She needs to face the consequences of her actions and sadly, her kids will need to witness it.

    I truly feel it's time for Protective Services to step in. At this point, I know she loves those babies but if she wants the best for them, she will give them up for adoption before they are any older.
    I fear she will start selling them off to the highest bidder before much longer.

      Actually Matt, we already are. She is on welfare (or was).

      She spent all her money to look like Angelina Jolie. Those kids could easily be adopted away, but of course, only the mother of the children would make the best parent for them. Right?

      You think Child Protective Services needs to step in because she has no money? CPS would have to step into a LOT of homes and take away a LOT of kids if that was the criteria. Give me a break.

      Todd – Now lets be fair to the woman... She didn't spend ALL of her money on her failed attempt to look like Angelina Jolie, if you remember she also spent a hefty amount hiring a publicist, when she thought all those kids would make her a celebrity, which is why she had them in the first place.

      Too many nut cases out there think that having a litter would qualify them for a reality show and wealth. We now have Kate, the Masches, and Quints by Surprise. The routine is to play up to the evangelical church types, get cash from speaking tours, and write a book or two. So far only Kate has hit it big making $250K an episode.

      Yeah, lets just keep insulting the dumb woman while the kids go hungry. Is it really worth letting eight innocent children go without to prove the mother is stupid??? Those children didn't ask to be born to such a stupid mother and the children shouldn't have to be punished because of it. I"d take those kids in myself if I could and would ask for nothing, all the while giving them as normal as a life as possible. How about we take care of the kids inspite of the dumb mother instead of neglecting the kids to spite the mother? Thanks.

      To those of you who think her kids would be "easily" adopted really need to look into the U.S. and the States adoption laws. Why do you think so many people go outside the US to find children to adopt? If she gave the kids up now (and she probably should), some won't get adopted as a few have health issues. Those kids are the last to get adopted. Some kids never get adopted and live all their early life in orphanages. I hate to put it in economic terms, but whether she gets welfare or if they live in orphanages, our tax dollars will still be paying for the children. They are innocent and should not be made to suffer for the mom's selfishness and/or stupidity. If adoption were made a little easier in this country (still with all the safegaurds), I think there would be more adoptions in the U.S. Just my two cents.

      You are mistaken about US adoptions. For American babies the wait is years. Thats why people go and look overseas.

      This is Karma teaching her a lesson. She should have NEVER had kids, let alone EIGHT of them, in the first place. She tried to be like Angelina and now it's bitting her in the a$$.

      She has fourteen kids, including the octuplets. She had six, all under the age of eight, before she got pregnant with the big litter. And all of them were by artificial insemination, supposedly all from the same sperm donor. There's no doubt she's a nutcase and her children will suffer for it. But just like men should take responsibility for the kids they father naturally, doctors should take responsibility for the kids they create using technology. This doctor should have considered Nadya's situation and said "no way" to impregnating her in the first place.

      Who cares what this bimbo does with her life? If she cannot feed her children, then maybe she should go get a job. She should have thought about this before her ridiculous fertility treatments. She squandered the money she had and doesn't deserve any more help than the millions of other poor parents out there struggling to support their children. I'm so tired of these "reality" losers expecting the country to care about their self-imposed problems. Nadya – if you are reading this – GET A JOB LIKE THE REST OF US YOU WHINER!!

      I saw her with her father and two of her older boys at Yogurtland in La Habra last Friday. She seemed miffed at her Dad. I heard her say she just wanted to get some frozen yogurt to put in the freezer. I don't know if he was trying to veto the idea or what. It seemed like there was a little arguing going on . Anyhow, the baby's aren't going hungry. I think she would have been buying groceries at Walmart across the way instead of frozen yogurt if that was the case. She just needs to drum up cash like many of us!
