I totally agree. The media keeps going on and on about her, then flaming her for being in the news, like she's some camera hound or something. If THEY weren't talking about it non-stop, that would be the end of it. Do I think she did the wrong thing by becoming pregnant again? Of course. She's not in a place in her life right now that she should've gone through with it. But, she did and they're here. I don't think she was expecting to have 8 babies, but that's what happened and now they need help. I actually respect her for not terminating any and for doing such a great job getting to 30 weeks with octuplets! Can you imagine??? It's incredible and amazing that they are all so healthy.
I was getting very annoyed last night- watching them replay over and over the clip with her little boy smacking her, like they're trying to prove through an infotainment show that she is unfit. Did people really pay attention to that clip? Did they realize that the little boy she was holding is autistic and did they see the way she calmly reacted, taking his hand and caressing her shoulder saying "Gentle." Her reaction was second nature. And her 911 phone call...let me tell you, I've made one of those. A few years ago I couldn't find ds4. He was probably about 5 and just vanished. Ah, it was the most terrifying feeling- had the whole neighborhood out looking for him as well as the police...ended up that he had laid down in the bathroom closet and went to sleep. I felt like a total moron afterwards but at no time was I unfit. Unfit is when you can't find your child and you don't call the police for 6 weeks, a la Casey Anthony. Have also had a child accidentally lock himself in his room, though I didn't have to call 911 to get him out, lol. And how they keep saying all sinister-like that she was reported to child services, then quickly say under their breath that it was deemed unfounded, like they don't want you to catch that part. Yeesh.
Long story short, I hope she gets all the help she needs.
