    I am a single mother seeking an “empty nest” support or social group anywhere in the Palo Alto or San Jose areas. Any leads you have would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Hi, Sandra —

    You might try contacting Julie at the number above to see if she has any suggestions or if she has considered starting a group in the South Bay. The other resource that might help you is one I’ve got posted here: http://youngadults.about.com/od/emptynest/ss/emptynest101.htm. It includes tips on surviving and thriving in the empty nest, from senior year prep through actual empty nesthood.
