Mathias and Johanna Eiserloh met in Johanna’s hometown of Idstein, Germany after WWI, where Mathias was a civil engineering student. They shared a dream of emigrating to America.


Johanna, age 44, was nine months pregnant when they left Crystal City. She gave birth to an infant son, G√ľnther, on January 4, 1945, on the train to New York Harbor and the SS Gripsholm. The child’s birth certificate lists his place of birth as New Orleans, LA.

I have a friend who tried ART, and failed. So they gave up hope, and moved to live by the sea! However a few months later she got pregnant naturally at 42 and was very happy! Then 3 years later, at 45, completely unexpectedly, unplanned and she thought she was in complete menopause and so it was impossible, another little baby girl!

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.
