This week, sources close to Octo-mom Nadya Suleman told RadarOnline.com that her church was helping her locate a new home for her and her 14 babies.
When we called the church for comment, it gave us this statement:
“In response to recent inquires and media reports, Calvary Chapel Golden Springs is issuing this statement regarding several inaccurate assumptions regarding our involvement with Nadya Suleman, the Whittier mother of octuplets.
Nadya Suleman has recently commented she attends Calvary Chapel Golden Springs, which prompted several media follow up inquires concerning her attendance. Since our church is not membership-driven, we are unable to confirm or deny whether she actively attends this fellowship.
We can say, however, that she is not personally known to our pastors or staff. And to the best of our knowledge, Ms. Suleman’s only contact with us was a minor inquiry regarding our Children’s Ministry.
Ms. Suleman has also been credited with commenting that our church is in someway involved with the establishment of a foundation for donation distribution, providing her with financial assistance, and helping her locate a new residence. Our church is not involved in any of these activities.
Although we are not condoning the circumstances surrounding the births, we are excited Ms. Suleman did not choose abortion as an alternative. Because of the strain these new-borns will place on her family, they will need both spiritual and child care assistance from volunteers within the community.
Since Calvary Chapel Golden Springs will not be involved with the organization or handling of these assistance programs, individuals who are interested in assisting Ms. Suleman may contact her directly through her web page.”
