Finally it seems like someone has talked some sense into Nadya Suleman!
Believe it or not, Dr. Phil gets some credit in helping her realize the severity of her situation if she refused outside help for her octuplets.
In a taping of Dr. Phil that will air tomorrow, Nadya tells him she will accept the round-the-clock help offered by charity Angels In Waiting.
According to their CEO Linda Conforti West, the agency will provide the services of neonatal nurses who specialize in caring for premature babies.
Angels In Waiting will begin their care as soon as the octuplets are released from the hospital, and will be re-evaluated every six months.
Dr. Phil made a statement saying, "Nadya realized that she had to make every effort to care for the octuplets as well as the 6 children at home in a way that proved that she understood the enormity and complexity of the task ahead.
"The plan in place, which could not have happened without attorney Gloria Allred and Angels in Waiting, affords all of the Suleman children a chance to grow and thrive. The childcare will be completely transparent, so that Kaiser Permanente and Child Protective Services will see that Nadya is seriously committed to her family."
And this doesn’t come cheap! Angels In Waiting says their care will cost about $135,000 a month. So how Nadya thought she’d be able to care for 14 kids on food stamps and disability payments, we have no idea!
Nadya should really be thanking her lucky stars that all of these people are stepping forward to help despite how crazy she seems. It’s obvious that Dr. Phil and Angels In Waiting, are extremely concerned with what might have happened to the children had they not stepped in.
Speaking of Nadya’s father, he just closed on a 4-bedroom house in La Habra, California. Angels In Waiting has also agreed to prep the house for Nadya according to the children’s needs.
Do you think she deserves all of this attention and help she’s getting? Or would it better for Child Protective Services to step in?
