COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – NBC4 Anchor Jennifer Bullock will be the special guest speaker for a Mother’s Day Tea event hosted on Saturday by Cornerstone of Hope.
The event intends to bring mothers together who have experienced the loss of a child, while sharing stories of grief and growth. In October 2021, Jennifer lost her son Miles Owen at 33 weeks, who she described as “born sleeping.” Now, she is using her experience to help others who are going through the grieving process, helping them find hope.
“It’s one thing I kind of had to come to grips with is not just the loss of a child, but what can I do with this loss to maybe help somebody else who’s going through the exact same things,” Bullock said. “It’s OK to feel exactly what you are feeling, but don’t go through it alone.”
Cornerstone of Hope is a nonprofit support center that has operated in central Ohio communities for 10 years. The agency offers people and families a supportive environment to help them grieve and emerge from their pain with a renewed sense of purpose.
