(Newser) – Adoption may be an option for Nadya Suleman's octuplets if she can't care for them properly, her mom revealed in an interview with The Insider. "If I could see that she would not be able to take of them financially, I would opt for this," said Angela Suleman, reports Us. While grandma emphasized that she loves all 14 of her grandchildren dearly, their care is overwhelming, she complained. "I can't just live for my daughter, I have my own life," she said.

Single mom Nadya lives on disability payments with her mother, who is facing foreclosure on her home. While Angela is considering adoption as a possible solution to the family's problems, she doesn't believe Nadya would agree to it. But her daughter is concerned Kaiser Permanente will not release the octuplets until she can prove she's capable of caring for them.
