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.

In the September 2015, we will be 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. Our Self-Renewal Party will be Thursday, September 17 at 7PM at Heartsong Music in Central Austin. Subscribe to our newsletter (list) for upcoming information or read more.
