A 64-year-old woman is reliving the joys of motherhood at a time when most people her age spend their days caring for grandchildren, as she raises test-tube twin toddlers. Sheng Hailin, who also gives healthcare lectures across the country, described caring for her kids as “busy,” admitting that she was worried about keeping up with such a demanding schedule. She also said money was on her mind. Becoming the oldest woman in China to give birth three years ago, Sheng finally gave birth to the babies on May 25, 2010 in Hefei, Anhui Province, with help from doctors. She had first tried to conceive a test-tube baby in 2009, after the death of her and her husband’s only daughter, who died in a gas poisoning accident.
