The high-profile agency that represents the McCaughey septuplet family says they will not rep the Sulemans.

Statement by Wes Yoder, President of the Ambassador Agency:

"Due to our experience with high-profile clients undergoing intense media interest, one week ago a friend of our agency requested Ambassador's help to advise on the protection and licensing of the Suleman family photographs to safeguard the security of the children. While providing this pro bono advice, we explored whether agency representation would best serve the interests of this family."

He continues: "Ambassador has not executed a representation agreement, nor do we intend to do so, but because of our representation of the McCaughey Septuplet family during the past eleven years, we urge the local churches, people of compassion and the pro-life community to participate in a thoughtful plan to assist the Suleman children."

Do you agree that "people of compassion" should help these kids out?

The best way to help those kids is to adopt them out to responsible, capable families who can give them the attention and resources they need.

First of all we need to remember that none of the children asked to be born, so we must help the children and only the children of this woman who is in such a desperate state to give all of theses children help, because the mother seems to be looking out for herself and only herself. There should be a fund set up but only for the children and not for the mother to spend, she should have to show what she is spending it on and have a reciept to prove it. So when the children become grown they will have something to start their life with and not welfare.

Gotta love his ‘reaching out’ to churches and pro-lifers to support Nadya’s unconventional choices. HUH??!!! Does he even have a clue what he’s asking, not to mention WHO he’s asking?

If there were a way to ensure that any donations would be helping the kids and not going for manicures and plastic surgery for their selfish mother, I would consider donating. I’m struggling myself. I haven’t had a manicure in 3 years. I’ll be damned if I’m going to pay for hers.

Hey Nadya, it’s “been there, done that”. Unfortunately, for you, you are not the first woman to have a whole litter of babies…so nobody wants to see the story of your life. All we want to see is your 14 children taken care of. How one single woman could attempt to raise 14 children is incomprehensible. You are selfish and it is those poor innocent children that will pay for your actions. Do the right thing and give them up for adoption.

It all boils down to what is ultimately in the best long- term interests of 14 children and that is not something that is going to be decided on blog-sites.

You can bet that Child Protective Social Services is hammering this question out right now. It is not if or whether they should come to the aid of eight helpless infants, it’s how to best do that.
And unfortunately, anything that involves Nadya Suleman is way too obviously never going to be the answer.

And then there are the six already in the care of someone who has shorted their well-being by deliberately deciding to spend $25,000 borrowed as a student loan meant for living expenses on cosmetic surgery.
Waht could cosmetic surgery have to do with child rearing other than as an investment in planning on being publicly seen in future?

Right there, that is an admission of defrauding the government and that has to be dealt with as separate issue.

It’s pretty much a given that these eight kids are going to be in foster care for the foreseeable future. And six more face a lifetime of reduced circumstances due to the mental problems of their own mother who is incapable fo judgement that includes what is best for her children and overly permissive grandparents.

Angelina Jolie? What those kids really have is Michael Jackson with a womb—same judgement even less resources to fall back on. Even if she sells or has sold right to publicity for anything part of the deal of accepting social services money is it has to immediately be paid back over a certain small amount.
My guess is that Dateline paid the hospital bill as a donation arrangement, thereby realising Nadya Solomon of that financial obligation in future.

She needs to be locked up in the mental hospital that she used to work at. Back injury HA! I’ve had 4 children and pregnancy with one child is hard enough on your back. With a “back injury” how could she even carry the previous six much less the new 8? All of the pictures I’ve seen of her in the days before giving birth she is standing and smiling, not looking in pain. Looking for handouts is all this woman is doing! I feel so sorry for those poor children. I hope they are placed in homes with sane parents to care for them.
