New parents in their 60s and social services take away custody of their 1-year-old son

November 28, 2019 • By Shirley Marie Bradby

The desire to have a child is very strong in many people, but not all of them are lucky enough to see this wonderful dream come true.

The reasons can be among the most varied, both economic and social, as well as medical.

However, despite everything, the progress made in science and medicine over the years has made it possible that, nowadays, many people who are already advanced in years can still become a mother or father.

However, even if, now we are no longer amazed at women who become new mothers at age 40, we still have some doubts when we read stories in which some couples become parents when they are 50 or 60 years old.

In regards to the age issue, in Great Britain, their social services have decided to remove from a pair of new parents - he is 65 years old and she is 63 - the custody of their one-year-old son.

They are the oldest first-time parents in England, he is 65 years old and she is 63, and they have finally managed to fulfill their dream of having a child.

Clearly the gestation was not carried out by the sixty-year-old, but by a younger "surrogate" mother. The couple had to pay a lot of money for the procedure and had to go abroad to carry it out since, in England, medical services had refused to proceed because of their age.

Unfortunately, however, at the time of the little boy's first year of life, social services intervened, believing that the couple was too old to care for such a small child.

The two parents were devastated by this decision and are currently fighting rightfully to regain custody of their own little son. Although mortifying, social services have done what they think is right for the child.

Surely, the couple is able to take care of their little boy just like so many grandparents take care of their grandchildren! In fact, are we sure that an advanced age really does have a negative influence in regards to raising a child?

In any case, we are very sorry that this situation has occurred and we hope that the matter can be resolved in the best possible way for both parties, namely the parents and their child!
