Modern Day Sarah
Last night I went with my husband to visit some people from China. This woman has two children who are still living in China, and two more children living with her here in America. We asked her how old her two little daughters here are. The oldest is 2 1/2, and the youngest is 4 months old. Then we asked her how old her sons in China are. She said the oldest is 36, and the younger is a few years younger. She showed me pictures of them. Then she told us that she was born in 1945! That means she is over 60! She does look a little older, although she presents herself well, so certainly doesn't look over 60! But what I can't wrap my mind around is that 4 months ago she gave birth to a baby! I've seen both children, I know they are hers, not adopted. I'm 46, and I can't imagine having another baby at my age. The risks involved are too great for me. But she had one at 60! All I can say is, WOW!
