I use to take my girls to this one park years ago and we met a set of grandparents who took care of their granddaughter while their daughter worked full time.

They were devoted to the child and knocked themselves out everyday.

The baby was 4 months old and she said "I don't know if I can do this all over again!"

She told me "my daughter was 56 when she found out she was going to have this baby and her first one was at 52!"

She said, “my husband and I are almost 80, I just don't see how we can manage!"

Can you all imagine having a first baby at 52 and another at 56!

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.
