Does Lawrence Welk have a lullaby CD?


A sixty-two year old woman in Redding, CA just gave birth to her 12th child.




The newborn is the 12th child of Janise Wulf, who's also a grandmother of 20 and great-grandmother of three.

Wulf and her third husband, Scott, 48, named the red-haired boy, Adam Charles Wulf. He follows just 3 1/2 years behind his older brother, Ian.

"I hate to raise one alone, without a sibling," said Wulf, who was impregnated both times through in vitro fertilization.

Both boys are the only two children of Scott Wulf, who said he always wanted children but his previous wife was infertile.

"I never even dared to hope that it was possible," he said of his sons.

Wulf has given birth to a total of 12 children, although one son died in his 30s and another died at birth with undeveloped lungs. Of her 10 living children, the oldest is 40.


This woman is 62, a diabetic, and blind since birth. Part of me wonders what in the hell this clinic was thinking. Both of my kids were invitro babies, and our clinic had very strict cutoffs for age. Also, here I am at 40 raising a four and a half year old and a two year old and while I wouldn't trade it for the world, Jeebus J. McChristmas, I am TIRED! There's a reason that nature designed you to pop out the chilluns while you're young and stupid, doncha think?

I think it's wonderful that she feels that "age is just a number", but really, what are the odds she's going to live long enough to see that kid graduate high school?

Any thoughts on late in life parenting?
