Miracles happen. My father was born in 1908.

My grandmother was fifty when she conceived.

She was ecstatic. No one else was.

My grandfather dropped dead two years later. I think it was from shock.

My father had nephews who were his age.

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.
