What a horror show.  Nine is a decent sized litter for a dog.

This is not encouraging me.  I am searching for a John Hayward, who married my great grandaunt and I can find no records of him before their marriage, and he didn't put any father's name on the marriage record.   So I must resort to finding John Haywards and looking for clues.   I may need to give up on this one.

Janpearey - where is your John Hayward supposed to be? I have a few lot in my tree!

Well, the poor soul had no control over it did she!
I can’t imagine how she will cope ,or how well organised support will be !
Just hope the babies  are not turned into a sort of “ peep show”.

I don't know how anyone, even if they had the support of an extended family, could look after 9 babies. Hope they will be ok. Erato, I think your comment was lacking empathy to say the least.

Nine seems unimaginable! And the publicity that ensues (Canadian Quintuplets?) often wrecks any "normal" life for the whole family, it seems.

"lacking empathy"

Damn right.  I do not understand, sympathize with or share the feelings and view point of this person.  What she did was outrageous, irresponsible and selfish, and will only take resources away from other families and children who need them.

Problem was with the Dionne Quins, is that the family got on the gravy train to help raise the quins. Not realising, that once the Gravy Train gets up to speed, there is no getting off.

Ah, that was the surname - I couldn't remember it, but that was the family I was thinking of.
From Errato's comments, I assume it was overenthusiastic fertility treatment? More embryos allowed to survive and develop? I've no knowledge of the full story, but feel that a natural pregnancy and survival to birth, even via caesarean, of so many foetuses would be unlikely?
