CA mother of 14 dreamed of having big family

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

WHITTIER, CA (WFLX) - The mother, who gave birth to octuplets more than a week ago, is now out of the hospital and speaking out.

Her first TV interview won't hit the air until next week; however, Friday morning, Fox 29 obtained excerpts.

Nadya Suleman told doctors she battled with depression for years after getting hurt in a 1999 riot at the state mental hospital where she worked. She said that struggle went away after she began to realize her childhood dream of having a huge family.

She now has 14 kids. "I just longed for certain connections and attachments with another person that I really lacked, I believe, growing up."

Meanwhile, new doctors reports show she had three miscarriages. She says, she struggled for seven years before finally giving birth to her first child in 2001 through in vitro fertilization.
