Got pregnant in my 50's (just last year), a true Bonus Baby.
My husband and I were shocked and thrilled at the same time.
My daughter, Elizabeth, has been a joy to us.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:

You Make Me Feel Like an Unnatural Woman is not only about having children later in life: it's about what happens to a marriage—and to the spirit, when even the most sought-after baby comes.
