HEARTS is a peer-to-peer grief support group sponsored by the Missing Alexis Foundation. Our purpose is to extend support to anyone whose life has been touched by pregnancy or infant loss. This group is not led by a psychologist or trained counselor, but rather, by families who have personally experienced similar losses.
The story of H.E.A.R.T.S. begins with just that unfortunate event - a broken heart. Five bereaved mothers from the Northern Kentucky area found one another after experiencing the painful sorrow of losing their babies. Through a variety of paths, and interweaving losses, these mothers discovered that though the losses of their precious babies each occurred under different circumstances, the pain associated with those losses was quite similar. Thus began deep friendships, and the determination to bring about much-needed support for local Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati families coping with the loss of a baby.
