    Unsuccessful marriage

    Adriana Iliescu was born in 1938 in Romania. She worked as a university lecturer and also wrote books for children (she has published 25 in total). At the age of 20 she got married but her husband didn’t want to have any children. Eventually they got divorced and Adriana focused on her university career only.

    The last resort

    When she decided she wants to have a baby, it turned out that there were some fertility issues. She had been treated for 9 years until she finally went for in vitro. There would be nothing strange about it but for the fact that she was 66 at that point. Adriana was aware of the risk she was taking but she was too determined to give up.

    Late motherhood

    The sperm and the ovum came from anonymous donors. The woman had triplets but two of them died before they were born. Fortunately, on 16 January 2005 in Bucharest her daughter arrived in this world. As it was a premature birth, she was immediately taken to the intensive care unit. Adriana decided to baptize her daughter at hospital and she called her Eliza.

    A grandmother instead of mother

    The girl is 17 years old now. She likes science and she is planning to go to university. Adriana is 84 years old and she tries to live an active life. She has been through a number of unpleasant things in her life. Some people thought that it was very selfish of her to have a baby so late. Moreover, some of the nuns present at the baptism were very unfriendly towards Adriana and one of them were as far as to say that the baby was a fruit of an evil force.
