Image: Sarajean Grainson, 54 with twinsJune 18, 2009 - Even if the two digits - 54 - were reversed, Sarajean Grainson would be considered an older mom. But she'll turn 54 in July, and last month the Valley Stream woman gave birth to fraternal twins Matthew and David.

It's not so shocking anymore for a woman in her 50's to have a newborn. But the Grainson clan gathered for a news conference Thursday at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, where the twins were born, because Grainson said she wanted to inspire women not to give up on the dream of carrying a baby.

I want women to know there is no biological clock. . . . It's not ticking anymore, Grainson said. A doctor brought Grainson out of menopause and combined donor eggs with her husband's sperm.

Grainson plans to stay home full-time; she joked that while other women jump from planes or go to the Caribbean in retirement, she'll joyfully spend hers raising children.

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.
