Some encouragement Ladies... dad35 posted the original thread...
MOBILE, Ala. - To all who know her, Allie Grace is a miracle. You see, she's Susan and Bill Armbrechts first child. But here's the special part. They have been married for 24 years and gave up trying to have a baby more than a decade ago.
"It's great! I couldn't ask for a better Christmas, or birthday present for the rest of my life," said Susan Armbrecht.
Mother's Day used to be a painful for the Armbrechts. But, this year the couple plans to mark the milestone, Susan's first Mother's Day, by celebrating. Bill Armbrecht hopes their story inspires others.
"Really message of hope, for people that have given up hope in mid 40's, to late 40's," said Armbrecht. "I hope one day someone will come in my restaurant, the Brick Pit, and show me their baby and say they saw us on FOX10 and that gave them hope," said Armbrecht.
The Ambrechts said no one can explain how they conceived a child. After all, Susan was 47 and Bill was 52. They had stopped fertility treatments about 16-years ago and had been told it wasn't meant to be.
"Miracle! God works in ways we don't understand," said Susan Armbrecht.

I am the father of Allie Grace in this story, and though it would be nice to be 35 again, I wouldn't change a thing. I found this site on Susan's favorites page from when she was pregnant and thought our story might be incouraging to women who read it. As you can tell, it is a faith based story, and if it has given someone hope, then maybe some reader will understand why we have been blessed with this perfect little girl. I will say that the 1s't 4 months were definately a younger mans gig. Everyone calls me Abraham down here. Eat more Brick Pit BBQ cause baby needs new shoes. Sorry, shamless plug.
Hee hee! Thanks again dad53 for posting the story. It was very thoughtful of you. My brother turned 50 today - he and his wife want a family, too, and I know he also feels quite Abraham-ish at the thought.
