Interest in infant-loss support group grows


Follow The Republic:


The nondenominational Christian-based Angels of Hope infant-loss support group that began in November already is growing.

In fact, the group that began meeting monthly is moving to twice monthly — and to a bigger space (Room 1109) beginning at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Columbus’

St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, 719 Fifth St.

Thirteen people attended the first meeting and 19 attended the second, said founders Kylee Jones and Megan Bozell, both of whom have lost children. The group is aimed at those who have lost babies or children up to about the age of 2.

“I feel like we’re learning as much as we’re helping others learn,” Bozell said. “And I feel like we’re growing just as much as we might be helping others grow.”

A recent discussion offered tips on coping with grief at holiday time. Bozell and Jones both have said they want the group to offer emotional support but be practical, too.

Toward that end, the women are seeking a Spanish-speaking person to translate for any Latino visitors.

Information: Kylee Jones at 350-5944 or kylee_jones@att.net; or Megan Bozell at 343-7884 or mbozell22@gmail.com.
