I'm used to hearing about people who could be considered "senior citizens" having kids. I live in Iowa, it happens. Not surprising.

I just can't help but feel like it's selfish. I guess because I know what it's like to lose a parent at a young age. I feel like people that do that are focused on what they want at the time, but they are not thinking (or don't care?) about the emotional trama that the child will feel when they die while the child is still young...it lasts a lifetime.

"The oldest woman in the world to give birth is believed to be Romanian Adriana Iliescu, who was 66 when she had a daughter in Bucharest in January 2005."

Heh, that info is wrong. *ahem* Wasn't Sarah in her 90's when she gave birth? :azn:

Very true, Amelia...good point! But, Isaac was 37 when Sarah died...people lived longer back then! So, that wasn't the point I was questioning, but it is true!

that's unfair for the child... how long will she be alive for the child's life? not to mention that giving birth that late in life is so dangerous for both mother and child... so many complications can occur.

Yes it is very selfish imo. Think about it Ken Lay died of a heart attack at 64. The child will be extremely lucky to have one living parent when he or she is 20. Can you imagine getting ready to graduate high school and having to stay home and care for a parent because they had surgery. Or to have put one of your parents in a nursing facility. And I'm not talking about the physical part of it. We lost hubbys grandma this year. I couldn't imagine loosing a parent at my age, let alone if I were young.

Key words "fertility treatments", If it wasn't for those she would've not given birth to anything. So, its nothing special in my book. She is kinda selfish to have a kid at that age not to be rude or anything.

Disturbing.......a miracle.......but disturbing.......

Not all fertlity treatments work tho. My Aunt went through many surgerys and medicines, and it still took her 10 years to have Matthew......and she's in her 30's.....so in a way it is special.......and disturbing........
