Paul Nozell had few doubts as he sat in front of an ultrasound screen watching as two eggs -- no bigger than pinheads -- were implanted in his wife's uterus.

"Those were the best eggs you could get," he said. "Those two eggs were just perfect."

He was right. On Nov. 27, Garrett and Laura Nozell were born.

Marianne Nozell was 45 when she gave birth to the twins. She and her husband joined the estimated 15 percent of U.S. couples who undergo fertility treatments each year.

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 our 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 there will be no more babies in our house.
