Don't criticise me for having twins at 52

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, June 11, 2009 | 0 comments

Newborn twins can be daunting for any mum, but for Liz Addy the 3am feeds and nappy changes are an even greater challenge - as she's 52.

But despite becoming a first time mum to Thomas and Sophie later in life, Liz doesn't regret a thing, and she hasn't ruled out having more kids.

"Looking after twins is just a different challenge," says Liz, "I've had tremendous adventures in my life, but this is the most exciting and awesome thing.

"I always hoped I'd be a mother but I didn't meet the right man, so until my late 40s it looked as if I wouldn't have children after all."

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.
