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.

    How do I talk to people on here about this. I'm 46 have 4 adult children and will start trying in 5 months to have another ??????????

  2. This blog is just a collection of stories I have found online - so right now we have no capacity for discussion.

    However there is a great discussion group that I have found at the "Child After 40 forum":

    Hope to see you there!

Don't just sit there, reading this story or article - say something! Do you believe it? Do you think it is impossible? Do you wish it was you? Do you have a story to share (it might get published!)
