This is a great summary of issues that a latecomer faces. It recognizes various types of latecomers, whether they're only children or the youngest member of a family (I fall in the latter category) and describes their different situations.
I sought out reading material about this issue, when I faced doing Eldercare in my mid-thirties when many of my friends were becoming parents. My biggest revelation from the book came when I realized that the probable reason for my lifelong death obsession came from the shear quantity of funerals I attended before the age of 16 (my grandparents alough long lived, were all dead by the time I was 11).
This is a book I think many potential "older parents" would benefit from reading.
