Octomum accepts round-the-clock help from nonprofit agency to raise her kids

New York, March 10 (ANI): Nadya Suleman, who became a history-making mum after giving birth to octuplets on January 26, has agreed to use the services of a non-profit agency to raise her 14 kids.

The 33-year-old, who conceived all her kids through in vitro fertilization, will have Angels in Waiting assisting her round-the-clock with free neonatal intensive care.

The single, unemployed mum was said to have previously declined the group’’s original offer of reported 135,000 dollars a month after refusing to give her consent for a reality show.

However, attorney Gloria Allred and TV’’s Dr. Phil McGraw were alleged to have convinced her to reverse her decision and take the revised deal, which now included buying a new house, according to TMZ.com.

“Now that Ms. Suleman has found a suitable new home, Angels in Waiting has also agreed to help Nadya prepare the house properly to meet the children’’s needs,” The New York Daily News quoted Allred as saying in a statement.

Dr. McGraw added: “Nadya realized that she had to make every effort to care for the octuplets as well as the six children at home in a way that proved that she understood the enormity and complexity of the task ahead.

“The childcare will be completely transparent, so that Kaiser Permanente and Child Protective Services will see that Nadya is seriously committed to her family.” (ANI)
