I firmly believe that there is a season for everything in life---reaping, sowing, sorrow and joy (Ecclesiastes 3). Some people would have you believe that if your season for getting married, choosing a second career or having children is not the same as theirs, something is wrong with you. Don’t accept that for a minute because you are just fine.
Having been raised on a farm, I’ve seen first-hand that when you plant seeds for a crop not all of them will produce at the same time. Each will operate in its own season. The exact is true with our lives. Each woman operates in her own given season of becoming a mom. You may have wanted to give birth during your twenties or early thirties but did not. Instead, you were placed in the waiting season.
The reasons I continue to write the content of this blog after many years are:
1-Encouragement to the "want-to-become a first time mom over 35" during her season of waiting.
2-Encouragement to the "new" older mom who may not know any other first time moms over 35 and 40 (There are countless first time moms over 40. You are not alone, my sister.)
3-Lack of positive and updated information available to women who want to give birth after 35 and 40.
4-Belief that it is one of my God-given purposes to provide support to others as I was supported when I conceived the old-fashioned way, gave birth at age 42 to a healthy baby and again at age 44 to a healthy baby .
