From White as Milk, Red as Blood: The Forgotten Fairy Tales of Franz Xaver von Schönwerth, Knopf Canada

A countess claims it’s impossible to have more than one child by one man at a time. Eventually, she births septuplets and throws them to the wolves. It is unclear, however, whether she loves them but is ashamed of her ignorance or is horrified and wishes them dead. Whether she intends for the wolves to eat them or to raise them. The count discovers the children and has them raised elsewhere, calling them The Wolves. 

This is one of those beautiful tales where meaning is left open to interpretation and I didn't want to give readers an answer, either way.
