YOUR LIVES, YOUR LOVES



She had 11 babies to 9 fathers!

M
y best friend sent me a magz clipping about a Mom who had 11 babies to 9 fathers. Amazing isn't it, but the woman is all but proud of her being a single parent. She reckons she's a great mother. Her first three children have ended up adopted or in care and one spent time on a life-support machine.

"Accidents happen all the time--I can't help being fertile," she happily said. The funny thing is that she doesn't know the full names of the fathers of her first three children. She believes she's a good parent, and doesn't need to have a father figure around. At least her children have a surname--hers.

A
lot of things have gone wrong and the social services always try to blame her. One of her kids broke his collarbone, falling over a dog. His other son fell six meters from an open window and spent two days in hospital with concussion. Another son burned himself badly playing with her cigarette lighter.

T
hese things happen to any parent, she reasoned out. For her, it doesn't matter who you are, you can only do your best. She does not see having children as a problem. In fact she wouldn't rule out having another baby by another dad.

Well, I know what you meant, but that's the way she wants her life to be--a good mother! Inggit ka lang!
