My friend called me up about 3 years ago, somewhat upset, needing to talk.

Just past her 56th birthday, she thought she was in menopause.

Her two daughters were in their 20's and 30's.

She suddenly discovered she was pregnant!

Her child is now two, and again, very healthy!

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.
