If you thought taking care of more than two toddlers at once was hard, try multiplying that by a hundred. There is dreaming of being a mother and then there is dreaming of being a mother to 105 children. Christina Ozturk was never afraid to dream big and worked hard to turn that dream into a reality, making sure each of her children is cared for.
The Russian woman has revealed she and her millionaire husband plan to have up to 105 biological children, after welcoming 10 babies by surrogate in just 10 months. This is how she plans on making it happen.
A Chance At A New Beginning
Christina is originally from Russia with her own biological daughter whom she had at the age of 17. The single mother had decided she was due for a vacation and went to the sea in Batumi. This popular tourist destination is often referred to as the “Las Vegas of the Black Sea”.
This vacation turned into a life-changing journey. Christina, 23, met Galip Ozturk, 56, and fell in love with the wealthy hotel owner.
Love Transcending Age
The couple describes their fateful meeting as love at first sight. Galip explains: “She is so easy to be with… always has a smile on her lips and yet at the same time is shy and mysterious.” It didn’t take long for the love birds to marry.
“She was the kind of wife I always wanted for myself, an uncut diamond where I saw what a pure and kind heart she had,” adds Galip. Christina also describes her husband as her “mentor, guide and fairytale prince all rolled into one”.
Fast forward, this married couple now has 21 babies…
A Wish For A Big Family
Kristina always dreamed of a big family and made sure to share her wish with her husband. Galip was more than happy to have as many children as possible and make his wife happy.
The age difference between them was nothing but a number and despite his older age and having adult children of his own, Galip was open to a large family.
21 Babies, And 100 More To Come
The couple decided that in order to get to the high number of children that they wanted quickly, they would use surrogates. This would not only take some strain off Christina’s body but accelerate the process of having 100 children.
“I don’t know how many there will eventually be, but we certainly don’t plan to stop at 10,” says Christiana. The mother already cares for 21 babies but she envisions growing that number to 105.
The Surrogate Process
Christia originally planned to have a baby every year but then realized that she would not be able to reproduce that quickly. They decided to use surrogate mothers instead. This process would cost them around $9,707 each pregnancy.
“The clinic in Batumi chooses surrogate mothers for us and takes full responsibility for the process,” Ozturk explained. “We are not personally acquainted with surrogate mothers and do not have direct contact with them in order to avoid problems after pregnancy.”
Just A Question Of Money And Time
Naturally raising this many children is a privilege that not many can afford. Christina’s wish to have an extraordinarily high number of children is made possible by her husband’s millionaire status so finances aren’t one of the obstacles they face. Their only barrier was time because to have 100 children naturally would have taken them years. That’s why the couple opted for surrogacy.
The couple was particular about who they chose to carry their children. Christina had all her potential surrogates get counseling and sign legal paperwork that the children are genetically from Christina and her husband so that they wouldn’t come back to claim them.
She also gave checks to each surrogate to make sure they didn’t indulge in any bad habits or addictions. Christina also chose surrogates who had been pregnant up to once only before.
Bumps Along The Way
The couple’s journey hasn’t always been smooth. Despite Christina’s attempts to provide counseling for the surrogates to prepare them to let go of the baby, they birth, one of them wanted to keep the child after it was born. However, because the babies are genetically from Christina and her husband, she had no rights to the baby and had to give it up.
There is also the responsibility of caring for so many children at once. Christina doesn’t want to rely on nannies and prefers to do the bulk of the every day care herself. However, it is often more difficult than she thought it would be.
A List Of Strict Rules
Christina has her family follow a very strict regimen. For instance, the children are only allowed to eat homemade meals: “Food is strictly according to grams – not a gram more, not a gram less.”
Christina also asks her nannies to photograph each baby’s dirty diaper so that she can determine if the contents are “of good color and consistency.” “‘If the child begins to cry, I forbid you to take him in your arms,” she adds. Christina also has a diary kept for each child’s daily activities.
However, Christina also highlights that her house is “full of relaxation”, adding the couple enjoys “watching movies and cartoons, eating junk food, playing backgammon and walking with children.”
Benefits Of A Big Family
While 100 kids is quite a high number, there are many benefits to having a large family. The siblings always have someone to play with and the kids learn responsibility, and other values by taking care of each other and sharing space.
Christina adds that her eldest daughter often helps her to care for the babies and said she loves being around to care for the babies.
