We were all shocked but super excited also. You will have lots of help with the little one.

I hope everything turns out for you. I just wanted to let you know about my mom.

My sister is now almost 12 and as healthy as a horse.

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.
