Image: More older moms don't stop with one babyCynthia Wilson James was always sure about two things: She wanted a husband who shared her spiritual beliefs, and she wanted to have more than one child with him.

And just because she didn't reach that first goal until she was 40 didn't mean the second one was out of reach.

The Columbia, S.C., woman, now 52 years old, conceived her first daughter, who just turned ten years old, around her first wedding anniversary.

Daughter number two, who turned eight years old in January, was conceived less than two years later.

by Marlo Schalesky

-- Contains frank and emotionally resonate stories from both men and women facing the struggle of infertility.

Mother's Day is not a joyful occasion for all women, particularly those who would like to have children but cannot.

Marlo Schalesky's Empty Womb, Aching Heart: Hope and Help for Those Struggling with Infertility does for Christian women what Rabbi Nina Beth Cardin's Tears of Sorrow, Seeds of Hope: A Jewish Spiritual Companion for Infertility and Pregnancy Loss did for Jewish women: provide comfort and camaraderie in the face of infertility and pregnancy loss.

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.
