Welcome to the next Forum of the Summer Series at our new A Child After 40 online community: Three Women and a Magic Sperm Vial—Contemplating Single Motherhood After 40.
JOIN US from 12th–14th July and meet Beth Jones, an author and journalist who’s contributed to the Boston Globe, New York Times and Huffington Post.
Beth is a co-author of: THREE WISHES: A True Story of Good Friends, Crushing Heartbreak, and Astonishing Luck on Our Way to Love and Motherhood, which she wrote with Carey Goldberg and Pamela Ferdinand, journalists from leading US newspapers.
THREE WISHES is an honest account of three friends who each contemplated single motherhood—an often gripping tale full of surprising highs and lows on the road to lasting relationships and motherhood after 40.
Starting with Carey, who was the first to take the brave step of choosing a sperm donor, a chain of events began that dramatically changed the lives of each. As the “magic” vial was passed to each friend—either through “fate” or happenstance—they found marriage and motherhood.
With more women feeling compelled to face the choice of single motherhood as they approach midlife, Beth’s story is a sign of the times, and bound to resonate in the hearts of our growing multitude.
“It wasn’t my intention to be a mother over 40”, says Beth, “but life intervened and I was divorced when I was 35.”
She describes the years between 35 and 40 as a “wild ride” that eventually led her to begin planning to become a single mother using a sperm donor as she approached her 40’s.
This is where the story takes an unusual turn. “Life intervened again”, says Beth, “and I had my son at 41 and married his father two years later.”
From the looming biological clock to tragedy and then joy, Beth’s journey is a revealing glimpse into modern motherhood for women in their 40’s.
