I waited until I was 44

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, January 01, 2009 | 0 comments

If age 27 were the cut-off, all the bright, educated woman, who are intelligent enough to get their doctorate degree and a job before reproducing, would be barred. Those who wait have higher income, a better education and are able to provide for themselves and their children.

I waited until I was 44. I may not live to see grandchildren, especially if my child waits to obtain her medical degree before having children, but I can guarantee that no child has more love, more attention and more toys.

Remember that 99% of all the abused and neglected children filling our juvenile courts are born to YOUNG mothers who are too irresponsible to be a parent or to financially unstable to support them. Anyone suggesting that younger is better needs to visit juvenile court in any major metropolitan area. Older, wiser and more stable parents are better for the child.

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.
