Once dubbed the “super granny” in newspapers around the world for giving birth to twins at 50, now 80-year-old Jolie Westers continues to live up to the title.

Thursday night, she scurried around her Rives Junction kitchen preparing food for a birthday party. It was to be a small affair, maybe 20 to 30 people. Besides the cake, she made everything.

“We kept her young,” said James Westers, who with his twin brother Justin Westers turned 30 on Thursday.

-- One in six couples in America will experience reproductive problems. Julia Indichova and her husband were part of that statistic.

According to several fertility specialists Julia's high FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) level was an indication that her body was no longer producing fertilizable eggs.

Her only chance of conceiving, they said, was in-vitro-fertilization with a donor egg.

After a futile quest for a more hopeful prognosis, Julia searched through a variety of holistic alternatives and finally decided upon a personal healing regimen.

She followed it as single-mindedly , as one would follow a doctor's prescription of antibiotics. Her daughter Adira was conceived naturally, eight months later, and was born on April 29, 1994.

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.
