Humiliated for giving birth at 65 but no one imagined what would happen later

At 65 years old, Donna Marcia’s life changed forever. Her great desire was to become a mother and she achieved it at that age when she did not expect it and became the mockery of many people. Despite what people thought, she decided to enjoy the news and face what was coming. Marcia was a woman of strong character who was determined to become an engineer at a time when that career was considered only for men.

Her determination, however, was not broken by the arguments of her parents and friends when she finished high school, she managed to qualify for the Faculty of Engineering and Design, which caused a great commotion because there were only students who were men. Marcia turned out to be a good student. She always stood out for her excellent average.

However, when she graduated from the faculty, things were very difficult because for the employers her degree did not matter, nor her academic merits, but her gender, and because she was a woman, they discriminated against her and believed she was incapable of doing a good job. Elias, one of her classmates, quickly found a job and advocated for her at the construction company, where he was hired and managed to get her a position.

Marcia turned out to be a great professional in the field, and the company recognized this and entrusted her with important projects. She and Elias had been attracted to each other since they were students in college, but neither took the necessary first step. Working together, they fell in love and managed to establish a relationship that lasted exactly 10 years.

At the end of that decade, they got married and he asked her not to have children because the work they had was very demanding. However, Marcia had the desire to be a mother and told him so. She also told them that she was willing to leave her job to raise their child. Elias accepted her proposal, but years went by and she was unable to get pregnant. They received several fertility treatments, but it was Mission Impossible, so they both resigned themselves to the fact that they could not have children and continued their lives as normal.

After 20 years of marriage, their relationship deteriorated and Elias left her for a much younger girl. That was a hard blow for Marcia, but thanks for a strong character, she was able to overcome it at that age. She was the director of the construction company where she worked and dedicated herself to give the best of herself in what were already her last years of work.

Afterward, she retired and began to travel around the world with the savings she had because she thought that her retirement would be enough to live on. One night she heard a knock on the door of her house, and to her surprise, she found Elias standing in front of her who came in remorseful for having abandoned her since the young girl had robbed him of his money.

Marcia felt sorry for him and told him to stay in the guest room, but a month later he entered her bedroom and they resumed their intimate nights despite their age. A few months passed until the lady began to feel unhealthy and was forced to visit the doctor only to discover what they never imagined. She was pregnant at 65 years of age. Elias almost fainted from the shock.

But unfortunately, he took a very cowardly attitude and assured us that it was impossible so that same day he took his things and abandoned poor Marcia. The first recommendation of the doctors was that the woman should have an abortion because her life was in danger due to her age. But she was willing to take the risk because she assured me that she was healthy and felt strong enough to carry the pregnancy.

People’s murmurings were inevitable, seeing her with her wrinkled skin and her pregnancy. But she did not care about the comets for her. Her only concern was her health. So she went for a walk every day and ate very well, and the process culminated in natural childbirth in which she gave birth to a completely healthy baby girl, leaving the doctors speechless.

Donna Marcia had slept peacefully all her life, and at 65 years of age, she found herself with a newborn baby in her room, crying every three hours to be fed the first two weeks were terrible for the lady who had only had the support of a neighbor who came to help with the laundry. However, her body got used to her new reality and little by little she got used to the sleeplessness and all the hustle and bustle that comes with having a newborn.

When she began to go out with the baby in her arms on several occasions, she was asked about the child’s parents as they did not believe she was theirs. When Andrina turned 4 years old and started going to kindergarten, her classmates shouted to her that her grandmother had already come to pick her up. However, the little girl did not see anything wrong with that because, for her, her mother was just like all the others.

However, as she grew older, her classmate’s curiosity increased and they would sometimes ask her, why does your mommy have wrinkled skin in our mommies? Note other children were very cruel and went so far as to tell her your mom is an old woman, but Andrina didn’t care about any of that because she loved her mother with all her soul. While Donya Marcia gave everything to her, and despite being retired, she gave consultancies to construction companies so that her daughter could have a good living standard.

Likewise, the lady was very participative in school activities for her daughter. At first, some mothers avoided entrusting her with tasks that might be too heavy for her. However, as they got to know each other, they could understand that she was a very active woman, and they integrated perfectly. Donna Marcia was practically the soul of the parent’s group. She was always at her best and was the main organizer of the cultural activities. Everyone learned to respect her, but what made her happiest was that her daughter was proud of her.

When Andrina turned 15, her mother was already 80 years old, but that did not stop them from waltzing together. Her story was spread by several media as a sample of the willpower of that mother who did not care about the criticism and mockery because she was going to give birth. Being a senior citizen.Donna Marcia never cared about the curious looks of people when she began to have social networks, she did not mind the comments on Facebook about the fact that she was branded as irresponsible because she would leave her daughter orphaned at an early age.

She always said that the important thing was not how long we lived with the person, but how we lived it Andrina in her social networks also took it upon herself to spread how much she loved her mother for being a wonderful woman and so generous that she decided to continue with her pregnancy, knowing that it could complicate herself. For the girl, her mom was the most vivid example of the strength of a mother’s love. So regardless of what people said, that pair of women 65 years apart learn to be happy with each other. So much for today’s story.
