:crazy: I just can not imagine...

Me either.  I had my kids young and I'm glad I did.  I have too much to deal with career and life-wise to even be having kids at MY age.  And then there's the possibility that you wouldn't live to see them out of college.

That possibility was there when you had kids at an early age too MG...  However,    More people are living longer than adults were when I was young.   I am 68 and I am not aware of any of the 45 or so that I graduated with that died of age related problems...     A couple of car wrecks and one who had a genetic heart problem from birth...

Proof nothing is impossible with God and that Sarah definitely bore and birthed Isaac in her old age.

I am probably going to have a horror nightmare tonight about this.

- A 65-year-old teacher from Berlin has given birth to quadruplets aftera pregnancy that was widely criticized by medical professionals because of her age, RTL television said Saturday.

Annegret Raunigk, gave birth to a girl - Neeta - and three boys - Dries, Bence and Fjonn - by cesarean section at a Berlin hospital Tuesday, RTL said. The newborns weighed between 655 grams (1 lb., 7 ounces) and 960 grams (2 lbs., 2 ounces) each.

A spokeswoman for RTL said the babies stood a strong chance of survival but possible complications couldn't yet be ruled out, because they were born in the 26th week of pregnancy. Their mother was doing well, the spokeswoman said.

"Ms. Raunigk basically has no medical risk anymore," Heike Speda told The Associated Press. She said the woman had signed a contract granting RTL exclusive access in return for an undisclosed sum.

Raunigk already had 13 children ranging in age from 9 to 44, from five fathers. She told Germany's Bild newspaper last month that she decided to become pregnant again because her 9-year-old daughter wanted a younger sibling. She also has seven grandchildren.

Raunigk traveled abroad to have donated, fertilized eggs implanted - a procedure that is illegal in Germany.

Wow!!!!! I'm gobsmacked!
