I have a friend who had her first and only child when she was 48, and her husband was 50. Their beautiful, smart, well-adjusted son is now 14, he does well in school, plays baseball, is all-around nice and he is the light of their lives. You just never know.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.

    I love hearing this. We adopted our one and only daughter when I was 48. She is the love of our lives
