This bit of news caught my eye. I’ve never heard of a man having symptoms of postpartum depression. I’ve heard of men having weird food cravings like their pregnant wives, but the baby blues, never. I guess anything is possible.
It could be because we focus so much on the mommy that the daddy gets ignored and no one notices what he is going through emotionally.
Adam became a father of quintuplets two years ago. He went from having family of three to eight in one night’s amazing delivery! The star of Outdaughtered, Adam Busby must have been in shock when he realized he was now responsible for five new little babies. One baby can throw you for a loop!
I can imagine how he must have felt being challenged with this new heavy burden. It’s no surprise to learn that he felt overwhelmed and distant with his family. This next chapter in his life is going to be quite an adventure.
The reality show can be stressful and is a big hurdle to jump. He and his family are being watched by the world of reality TV and their every move and mood will be scrutinized. That’s enough to scramble your emotions. It can be frightening. I don’t see how he and his wife have pulled it off so far.
Raising children is a journey filled with doubts, fear of failure, and a myriad of other things. Most of us wing it and pray for the best. But I’ve learned that unconditional love and patience is what most children crave.
It’s not about things, it’s about nurturing them and helping them to be good individuals who have what it takes to survive in this sometimes crazy place we call earth.
It will be interesting to see how Adam and his family do in this new world of reality TV. I think it’s a mistake to put your family in the public eye like that. Look at what happened to the Gosslins. Not pretty–and all for money.
In a statement Adam expressed his thoughts on his families exposure in the and his desire to be genuine and honest about their everyday lives in front of their audience.
“We knew that signing up to have our family documented for OutDaughtered that every aspect of our lives was going to be showcased on television. Because of this, we wanted to make sure that we were as real as possible,” he began. “This meant not only showing thefun and exciting timesof being a parent, but also the hard times, the stressful times and the messy times. I think our authenticity and transparency has really resonated with those who watch the show, and because of this, our audience continues to grow because they feel like they can relate to us in one way or another.”
