God knows a good mom and blesses her a lot. Not to say those who can;t physically have chidren aren;t good moms either, I was adopted myself and loved my parents dearly. You are a brave soul, i am 1 and the three that live with me wear me outsometimes, but they also are one of the reasons i get up every morning to see their smiling faces.

Not many people have the opportunity for 2 full families of children. You have gone to alot of effort to have these children and I admire you. I have one daughter,24, and I teach special ed. I work with 3,4,and 5 year olds. At 56, That takes alot of physical movement, but I send them home at the end of the day!~! So my hat is OFF to you.

Oh my God! Kathleen all I can say is WOW. You are a very brave woman. I am turning 50 in a few months and I wouldn't have the stamina to raise five more babies. You are my new hero. I also have 5 grandchildren (or will by the end of this month) only mine are three girls and two boys, one of the boys is the one due at the end of the month. I just spent a month and a half at my daughters house, helping her out by babysitting her twin 5 year olds (boy/girl) after school. I got home last Friday evening and it has taken me most of this week to recover.

Like I said Kathleen, you are my new Hero!

You go girl!

Welcome! I am a 51 year old mom, and my children are 16, 12, 9, and 4 years old! They are all my biological children. I did not get married until I was 34, and had my first at 35. I would like one more baby but my husband is afraid it might be too dangerous for me. I did ok with the other four. I am very healthy and only experience hypertension which is controlled by medication. But, it takes two to tango, and I can't do it on my own. Congratulations to you and your family!

You go, girl! I'm 46 and having a serious case of baby envy, We have four others - two daughters 23 and 21, a son 7, and a daughter 4. We haven't decided if we're hoping for another one or not! It's a joy to read about families like yours! Congratulations!

you are blessed and God saw to it that you were able to handle it. I so wanted to be a mother again at 50 but God has not seen fit for me to be a mom again. Know that You are a blessed woman. God knows what he is doing and that you of all people he chose to be the mother of these children.

I am 55 and would never think of having more, I was a grandmother at 35, raised him for 6 years, that showed me I was done raising children, now I am at the stage in my life that I can come and go as I please, love the grandchildren but not wanting to be a mommy again. My hat is off to you though, my choice is right for me as your choice is right for you.

I suspect that your "second wave" of children will be blessed to have you as a mother. We are all inspired to do what we came to this planet to do. We women who started raising children again in thier fifties are redefining what reaching this age means to us. Bless you and your family on your journey through this beautiful life.

You are a strong woman to take on so much! I have 5 children and 4 grandchildren myself and wouldn't begin to think of having another baby myself! What do your older children think of the younger ones? There is 10yrs difference between my oldest 3 and my younger 2 and I know they all adore each other but putting 20 or more years between "families" would definitely be difficult I would think!

well, I guess that answers my questionable ponderings about having another child at 44 =)
5 more kids after 50...amazing.... and how are you holding up physically & emotionally compared to the younger years? Congrats mama, kids are a blessing indeed!
