My little brother just turned 6 years old

I'm the oldest of eight children!

I'm 28 years old, and my little brother just turned 6 years old.

My mom was almost 45 years old, when he was born.

Although she said it was her hardest delivery, it was her easiest pregnancy.
(Start to finish her delivery was only 4 hours so...)

Although I'm nervous to have children after 35, it isn't the health issues that scare me - it's that they will out run me when they are teenagers!

I'd say GO FOR IT!!!

 -- What should a fifty-year-old woman do when she gets pregnant?
Any decision which she may take will result in unwanted repercussions.
But what does her husband want? Her daughter? The priest?

Isn't there a secret joy and hope that the pregnancy will satisfy some of the maternal instincts which had been lying dormant?


Will the fact that Asha is an Indian woman living in Ireland make a difference to her decision?
Whichever decision she will take may be wrong or ... wrong.

It is about life: full of surprises, crazy decisions and finally an unexpected turn of events.
There is a taste of Irish realities and Indian tradition and culture.
Humorous linguistic situations are enriched by the presence of Maria from Poland.

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.
