A Conversation with Nadya Suleman
Nadya: You know what? At this point in my life, that is the furthest thing that I would ever even imagine. I cannot grow additional eyes or hands. I'm not an octopus. I can barely give them—nobody could, not two people, not four people even could give them—all the emotional, psychological and physical needs. You can't possibly. I live every single day every hour of the day with a tremendous amount of guilt. And I feel guilty when I hold the one or two and then that I can't be there for the others. And they're crying. And then I feel guilty. Look at the older ones. They all have different unique needs. And I'll live with this forever. But all I can do now is keep on going, keep moving. Keep on trying to be the most devoted mother I can be.
I was...no. That was a conversational thing, and I was thinking, "Oh, one thing in life is [that] uncertainty is certain." I can't say five years from now something won't be different or that something like that won't happen. Right now, at this moment? Absolutely not. That's the farthest thing from my mind. I couldn't even waste my energy thinking about something like that.
