Eleni, quadriplegic, late-in-life new mom

Her first son is 20 years old - born just two years after the accident - the car she was riding passenger in overturned after the driver fell asleep. "I knocked my spine on the roof of the car and I broke my spinal cord,” said Koudounari.

Koudounari had her second child, daughter Dahlia, at Limassol General Hospital on Wednesday morning surrounded by her husband and a medical team.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
