Adoption Success Story by
I never ever in a million years thought I would say I am the VERY PROUD mother of a 11 month old little boy.

I was married for 23 years, and during this time we had tried several avenues to adopt.

Unfortunately, I was the breadwinner and unable to be a stay at home mom - which ruled out several agencies.

Adopting an older child was an option, but again we ran into roadblocks.

By my late 30s, I had accepted the fact I would never be blessed with Motherhood.

In May 2011, my husband of 23 years announced he was leaving the marriage to pursue a young woman he met on the internet.

My world was shattered...

In August 2011 the phone rang. It was a call to changed my whole life.

My brother was on the line. He said I have a friend who is having a baby boy and placing it for adoption. Are you still interested?

I had a hard time breathing when I spoke to the birth mother on the phone. Was she serious?

Was this all real? Would she like me? Would she care I was a 44-year-old single Mom?

Once a 44-year-old divorce' who had given up hope of becoming a mother, I am now a 45-year-old mother of a bouncing baby boy!

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.
