Valentina, a Ukrainian citizen, always held hope of having a child.
However, fate had a different plan, and she was unable to conceive for a long period of time.
So, when Valentina celebrated her sixtieth birthday, she decided to take a chance and visit a family planning center to find out if she still had a chance of becoming a mother.
The center pledged to support her, and Valentina began raising funds for the procedure.
After three years, she finally managed to save the required amount.
In the summer of 2010, the retired woman received the news of her impending pregnancy.
In 2011, her child, named Anna-Maria, was born. To everyone’s astonishment, the baby was born healthy and full-term.
Valentina received compliments from the entire hospital staff.
Subsequently, reporters were eager to interview this remarkable woman who successfully raised a child at such an advanced age.
However, Valentina wanted to protect her and her daughter’s privacy.
Therefore, she stopped answering inquiries and restricted access to her home, even for close acquaintances.
After four years, she finally agreed to be interviewed on television and revealed that many people envied her situation, making it mentally challenging to handle criticism from both loved ones and strangers.
Now 12 years old, Anna-Maria is an exceptionally clever teenager who excels in her studies.
She already assists her elderly mother by efficiently taking care of household tasks.
