Well ladies this is a older story but the fact still remains that many black fathers have so many children that they are unable to support the children.  This generates alot of the struggle on the children’s mother.  I will share that I have five children and the five children have three different fathers (2-1-2).  The struggle to support my children is one that has born creativity aswell as having shifted me into becoming quite frugile.

29-Year-Old Has 21 Kids With 11 Women

As if Octomom wasn’t bad enough, a Tennessee man, 29 year old Desmond Hatchett has now fathered at least 21 children he can’t support. Hatchett was in child support court again last week.  His name appeared on the dockett 11 times in one day, representing 15 of his children.

Hatchett says he wasn’t out to set a record.  He says he never intended to have this many children, “It just happened.”  He fathered the children by at least 11 different women and he claims all of the mothers knew about his large family.  The children range in age from newborn to 11 years old.

The question Knox County officials now face is how to support all these children.  Hatchett works a minimum wage job and by law the state can only take 50% of his paycheck for child support.  By the time that money is split 21 ways, some of the mothers get less than $2 per month.  That leaves the taxpayers footing a large portion of the bill for these children.
