The La Habra Police Department and Social Services of Orange County paid a visit to Nadya Suleman‘s home Wednesday. Suleman says they told her they were there to investigate a claim of neglect. Detectives and child welfare officials were in the home in the early afternoon on Wednesday before returning for a 45 minute interview on Wednesday afternoon. After the meeting, the officials left and no children were removed from the home.
Suleman says she thinks her son Aidan’s teacher made the call to authorities after he went to school with a black eye and a bite mark on his back from one of his siblings. The Octo-Mom said the teacher had put a note in her son’s backpack, but she hadn’t seen it until Tuesday, and assumes the teacher alerted authorities when she didn’t respond. Suleman said she doesn’t expect a follow-up visit and that she isn’t upset that the officials investigated the claims. She said they asked her how many nannies were in the home at one time and what kind of disciplinary action she took with the kids, and before leaving, commented on how well-organized her home was.
Social Services of Orange County wouldn’t comment on the investigation, citing confidentiality laws. Suleman said that because Aidan is autistic, he often bumps into things, and that she believes he actually got the black eye at school.
