I've always wanted to have triplets. I cannot think of any particular reasons but I once had a dream of having twins and I got really disappointed because I needed one more. This might have reflected my desire hidden deep in my mind. I often heard how difficult it is to raise twins. It's easy to assume it would be even harder to raise triplets. However, I cannot imagine what it is like to bring up octuplet along with 6 other children without a husband.
At first, I was amazed and happy to hear about the news. But there seem a lot of problems concerning this medical treatment. (1) Screening failure; she isn't fit to bear octuplet for psychological, financial reasons etc. (2) Malpractice; too risky and babies may have had a good chance of some kind of disability. (3) Cost; raising kids cost huge amount of money. (4) No regulation for fertility treatment. Anderson pointed out how media report on this news, which I thought is a really important issue.
