Most would agree that raising one child properly is a full-time job, while attempting to raise a dozen in the best of financial circumstances is near impossible, and yet for Angel Yulee Adams that simple mathematical equation doesn’t seem to register.

And because of that equation, this Tampa mother of 12, wound up in a small motel room, after failing to pay more than $6,000 in rental fees to the Tampa Housing Authority.

However thanks in part to the combined efforts of Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, the state Department of Children and Families, Hillsborough Kids Inc., the Children's Home Society and A Kid's Place, which last week gave Adams, 37 a temporary cottage at its shelter near Brandon, and also paid off her rental fees.

Obviously Angel Adams, didn't have a problem taking the freebies, and having others pay off her debts, however now wants them all out of her life.

Regional Director Nick Cox, from DCF spoke at a packed courtroom hearing: "Everyone has bent over backward; the mother has been less than gracious."

Judge Sheehan gave her a lecture, and referenced the fact that if her kids had been fed, got their medicines and were living in a good home there would be no need to sit through 28-hearings saying: "

We know you want us out of your life, we will be thrilled to close this case when you have all these things. A lot of people have gone way extra miles for you," Sheehan said. "Do you understand that?"

Adams replied quietly, "No comment, your honor."
