I became a mommy for the first time at 44 years old. I'm writing this blog because there are many of us older moms out there, but not many of us are writing! My dear daughter (DD) joined us five and a half years ago after a long dance with infertility treatments and eventually using all that science has to offer through the use of donor eggs. And, she has been the light of my life since then. Being a midlife mommy is a little harder, but so rewarding.
