Our Mission is to provide support to women and couples who made the choice to start their family at age 35 or better.

This month we are launching a new program, one that supports women who have added children to their lives through pregnancy, fostering and/or adoption.
This Women’s Circle will exist in Austin, Texas with programs for others outside of Austin to follow. We are using the teachings of Renee Trudeau (RTA). RTA Badge Our next is a Self-Renewal Party on Friday, October 23, 2015,
