Eucharia Anunobi Plans To Adopt A Child, Actress Says She Is Yet To Recover From Loss Of Only Child
Nollywood actress Eucharia Anunobi who recently organized a memorial service for her late son, Ekwu Raymond who passed away in 2007 has revealed that she is still yet to recover from the untimely death of her only child.
In a recent chat with Saturday Beat at the thanksgiving service of late Ekwu which held at RCCG Rose of Sharon Centre in Ikeja GRA, the actress said the scar will forever be there.
According to the actress, late Ekwu died as a result of doctors error and not sickle cell anemia as widely reported.
Here is what the thespian told SB:
“It is not possible to overcome the trauma of losing an only child; it is a scar that will always be there. I don’t even know if I have the strength. People only tell me that I have the strength but all I know is that I am very fragile and weak. Forget the powder and lipstick, it is just a cover-up; it’s been days and nights of tears”.
“In the fullness of time, I will adopt a child in God’s time; although, I still have people that stay with me that I’ve been taking care of, even before he (my son) died”.
“I still miss him so much, especially when I have to drive home and I remember that he’s no more; he used to give me a warm welcome anytime I got home. I never nursed any fear when he was born. I need to correct a misconception. He didn’t die because he had sickle-cell anaemia, he died because the doctors made a mistake, but I don’t want to go into that right now”.
