76-Year-Old Woman Has 6-Year-Old Son
There's nothing more rewarding and miraculous than the birth of a child. Unfortunately, it's not uncommon for a hopeful couple to have their plans derailed due to infertility. For many couples, they just can't conceive, whether it's due to an abnormality in the woman's or man's reproductive system. As science has progressed though, the chances of having a child have increased dramatically due to techniques like In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
According to the American Pregnancy Association, "In Vitro Fertilization is a one assisted reproductive technology (ART) commonly referred to as IVF. IVF is the process of fertilization by manually combining an egg and sperm in a laboratory dish, and then transferring the embryo to the uterus. Other forms of ART include gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) and zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT)."
While this technique has not only given hope to those who have the inability to conceive, it's also given women who have passed their physical prime for childbearing a second chance. In the case of 76-year-old Omkari Singh and her 86-year-old husband Charan, their desire to bear a son was so strong that they decided to use IVF. Unfortunately, while the male twin, Akashvani is now 7-years-old, his twin sister died at the age of four.
Though the Singhs now have the son they desired, they struggle at times to keep up with the child who is young enough to be their grandchild. Luckily, should anything happen to them, they have a daughter in her 50s who is willing to take care of her significantly younger brother.
