What’s New with the Project

Join Us

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. 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
