But as years rolled by with no sign of pregnancy and baby, she forgot about the prophecy and concentrated on the things she thought were more important than child bearing.

After all, she was not desperate having proved that she have the ability to reproduce as she already had a child, who had grown up and is in her third year in the university.

However, on February 20, 2012, Mrs Erondu true to that prophecy many years ago, and to her utter bewilderment, was delivered of a bouncing baby boy christened Nduka Kelechi Victor Erondu.

Baby Erondu came on the same day and date his elder sister, Ikonna Erondu was born.

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.
