Thank you, thank you, thank you…

Inspiration received…

I am 47 years old, and surprised to be pregnant!

My 16 and 17 year old daughters are thrilled, but a bit nervous for me…

The father of this baby wants no part of this.

He just told me, and I have been reeling for a few days…

But your stories have touched me, offers hope and stability…
Thank you.


One of my best friends just told me she is 13 weeks pregnant with her ninth child.

She is 45 years old, and will be 46 years old when the baby is born.

Her youngest is 6 years old!

She thought she was done! - Tammy

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.

    It doesn't matter if the father isn't interested, he has a LEGAL RIGHT to support his child. Get a good lawyer.

    He should feel grateful.
