My mother was 45 when she had me

I'm 38 now, and my mother was 45 -and my dad 47 - when they had me. I was not planned; in fact, at the time, it couldn't have seemed like worse timing. (My brother, then 9, was undergoing brain surgeries due to hydrocephalus.)

Turned out that it was a blessing in disguise; I gave them something else to focus some of their attention on, and I brought great joy to my brother who felt very alone & scared. I also had a 20 year old sister and 16 year old brother at home at the time.

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.
