Babies Are Resilient

Octomom uses her babies as props for photoshoots. She doesn't handle them well. She doesn't appear to even know how to carry one properly. She uses her cleavage to hold the bottle while nursing one of them because she has to be talking on her cellphone (maybe nobody has told her of hands-free and loudspeaker options). She picnics on wet grass outside while the U.S. tries to contain Swine Flu. Her babies are preemies.

But still, her preemies are surviving, are thriving. Sure, a lot of it has to do with modern medicine and all the care these preemies get from hired professionals. But still, they're proof of a baby's resilience. Sometimes, even the most critical of cases beat the odds.

Let's just pray their psyche and spirit won't crumble from their mother's other priorities.
