Athena is so proud to be one of a few selected for HAVEABABY movie which follows her journey through IVF to HAVEABABY.
Thanks to your support, the movie can be edited and hit the festivals!
A note from the creators:
Our HAVEABABY campaign is officially complete and it was a smashing success! A heartfelt THANK YOU to every single one of our 478 Backers who helped us raise over $54,000!!!
We are blown away by how much support we received over the last 30 days. The film was covered in the The New York Times and The Huffington Post, we were selected as indieWIRE Project of the Day, were honored to be Kickstarter Staff Pick and Project of the Day, and also to be featured on numerous curated Kickstarter film festival pages including Sundance Film Festival, Tribeca Film Institute, SXSW, Rooftop Films Inc., IDFA, the International Documentary Association and IFP.
A central goal of this campaign was to develop a community and to start a conversation about infertility beyond the film. In anticipation of our film completion and this campaign, we posted our very first (and pretty emotional!) entry on Facebook exactly 2 months ago today, and have over a thousand followers now. We are so grateful and heartened by the show of support we've received over these last two months and we hope you will continue to follow the film as we bring it out into the world in 2016!!
Amanda, Serin, and the whole HAVEABABY team
After a long journey struggling with infertility I am pleased to announce the birth of my son, Phoenix Emet Alexander Reich on August 29th, 2015. He is healthy and cuddly and I am adjusting to my new life!
Also, I wrote an article about my journey as a single lesbian mother by choice struggling with infertility and it is now published in the national magazine GO MAG. You can read it online here (and see more pics) or pick up a hard copy by searching for distributors here. Also check out my Facebook page for more pics of me and Phoenix here.
Although I am nesting, I am still teaching and performing so don't hesitate to keep sending me students & performance opportunities.
Thank you sincerely for all your support.
