The loss of a beloved is never an easy reality to deal with, more especially when it's a child. Nollywood actress, Eucharia Anunobi, who lost her son and only child in 2017 may look like someone who knows how to deal with pain but as it appears, that isn't the case.
She recently held a 1 year remembrance and thanksgiving service for her late son, Raymond Ekwu, at the Rose of Sharon Centre, Redeemed Christian Church of God , Ikeja GRA, Lagos.
In a recent interview with Saturday Beats, the veteran actress spoke on how she has managed to deal with the loss of her only child. The prolific actress revealed that she is yet to recover from the loss.
She said:“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 , ”
The actress who is also a woman of God was asked if she would ever like to adopt and this was her response: “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 , ”
Although her late son suffered from sickle -cell anaemia , the actress stressed that her beloved son didn ’ t die of his condition but rather as a result of his doctors ’ mistake.
“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. ”
