Sherri, 45
A child is a gift of God and should be taken as so. I am a single mom (age 45). My son is a year old now.

My pregnancy was a total surprise (I was taking birth control). I had never planned to have a child, but it is the most wonderful thing that has every happened to me. I was concerned due to my age but my doctors reassured me and I followed their instructions to a "T".

I have been a single person for sooooo long and now I have someone to be with and enjoy life with. I am discovering the world all over again through my son's eyes. Everything is brand new.

My son is the LIGHT in my life now. He keeps me busy ( in a good way) and I love it. MY words to older women - don't hesitate and don't be afraid - it is WONDERFUL!

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.
