Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like it's heaven on earth. Here are the joys and sorrows of life,let's spend the time together.

  When the world first learned about Mariam Nabatanzi, a woman from Uganda who is raising 38 children, there were many questions. Some worried about her ability to take care of the children, while others wanted to know how she came to be married off so young in the first place. 

 

  Mariam tried desperately to curb the birth of so many children, but various birth methods including injections and IUDs have not worked for her. This may be due to the rare condition that she is diagnosed with: hyperovulation.

  According to report, the children's ages range from 11 months to 23 years. She had six more children but they passed away.

  Hyperovulation means that each time Mariam fell pregnant, multiple eggs were fertilised. She therefore has several twins, triplets and quadruplets among her children. 

  

   Mariam believed that her children were more of a blessing than a burden. 

  While children are most certainly a blessing, they are also a great responsibility. That responsibility is made almost impossible in situations like Mariam's, where finances are tight and access to advanced healthcare is difficult.

  How do you think of this story? Please give your best wishes to this grest woman. Welcome leave your comments at the belowing!
