Quote from Parent:
“This is going to sound insane, but I try to get two hours [of sleep] a night. And I will try to compensate on the weekends and get at least four. It’s hard. I don’t know what day it is sometimes! One day melts into the next, a blur of kids, gym and writing. I have a tendency to overdo things. Obviously! … But I’ve always been like this.” – Nadya, on her sleeping habits.

“I didn’t have the babies to get in the media spotlight, I had my children because I love them and I always wanted a large family. I adore kids, I have fourteen of them and love them beyond anything I could express in words. The media frenzy was a consequence, not something I had in mind when I wanted to expand my family.” – Nadya, on her love for her family.

    A year later and these children are still in her care? What’s wrong with our social system? She’s unfit. Plain and simple.

      Until you’ve met her and spent time with her kids try reserving your judgement for things you know to be true. It’s really pathetic to judge a person on what you hear and see especially when you don’t whats true. Yes, she seems to have a way about her but you still don’t know her to say something so serious as having her children taken away.
