What to expect at at a Hope After Loss support group

FACILITATOR

Peggy Rosamilia

1 biological (miracle baby!) daughter, Angela, 27 years old

1 lost pregnancy at 5 months, Danny, 23 years ago

1 adopted daughter, Gianna, 17 years old

 

When I lost my baby boy, there were no support groups available.  I found some comfort online and with my therapist, but now that I've been involved with Hope After Loss, I realize how wonderful support groups can be!  I no longer feel isolated, or worried about talking about my loss - afraid I might upset some one else.  I welcome questions from people, even strangers, when they see the pin that I wear, symbolizing infant loss.

 

I was first introduced to Hope After Loss a few years ago when I was asked to join the Board as the Treasurer.  Once I became a part of this wonderful organization, I decided to volunteer with the Annual Walk committee.  I met wonderful people, who also belonged to this sad club.  Because of our lossess, we formed unique bonds.

 

My next step was to become a facilitator.  I went through the training, then sat in on several meetings before I felt secure enough to lead a group.  I now facilitate in New Haven, and Guilford - if needed.  I continue to meet wonderful people and each meeting is a blessing. Yes, we shed tears, but it’s ok because we all understand- I’m so grateful to this organization!! I may be helping others, but I’m also helping myself.  

Warm regards,

Peggy
