Miraculous - Neil James-Poole with wife Sarah and their baby Emily. Neil was told he might never be able to have childrenWhen Neil James-Poole was diagnosed with diabetes, he knew the disease put him at greater risk of heart disease, stroke and kidney failure.

But what he wasn’t expecting was that it would mean he might never be able to have children - a problem he didn’t learn of until it was almost too late.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
