Bereaved Parents Find Support After Loss


KATY MAGAZINE NEWS

July 21, 2019

By Anne Bowman Lee

July is recognized as Bereaved Parents Awareness Month. Parents who have lost a child should know they are not alone, and they can get help. Grief support groups in the Katy area provide a forum for parents to share their difficult journey, in a safe environment.

Bereaved Parents Awareness Month was initiated by Peter and Deb Kulkkula to honor families trying to cope after the death of a child. If you are a grieving parent, find a support group that provides a place of understanding, hope, and reassurance. If you know someone who has lost a child, your support and patience can help them manage the grief.
