A mother has told how evil trolls accused her of being “selfish” for adopting a child aged 49.
After another heartbreaking miscarriage, Kris Monsour and her partner decided to adopt a child.
“At 41, after my last miscarriage, I was told I would never be a mother and accept my fate,” she said on her TikTok @thevintageparentswhere she boldly told her story.
Kris recalled receiving a text message two years ago asking if she and her partner were still looking for adoption and after going through such difficult times getting pregnant they didn’t hesitate to say yes.
However, she has been the subject of some comments from people online who said it was “unfair” of her to have a child at her age.

“This poor kid who sadly will have a geriatric parent before they graduate school,” one said bluntly.
“My dad died at 60. I’m 26 and have to live the rest of my life without him – it’s just unfair to the kids who have them so late,” added another.
“At that age I wouldn’t have even tried – it’s so unfair to the child that my grandma gave birth to my mother at 41 and my mother was in her 30s when my grandma died,” said a third.
But Kris refuses to let cruel commenters get close to her as in another video she can be seen holding her baby daughter with a beaming smile on her face next to the caption: “Me at 51 with my two year old.
“However motherhood comes to you, it’s a miracle,” she added.
Supporters also flocked to defend the couple’s decision.
“No time is promised between parents and child. But all that matters is being the best parent you can be while on this earth,” stressed one.
“These comments are awful…so happy for you and that your little girl is getting so much love no matter your age,” applauded another.
While one person summed it up perfectly by saying, “You’re amazing — don’t listen to the haters!”
