Forget my make-up, am yet to recover from the loss of my only child – Eucharia Anunobi


Actress , Eucharia Anunobi , who recently organised a memorial service for her late son , Raymond Ekwu , who died last year .
The actress marked the memorial with a thanksgiving service at the Rose of Sharon Centre , Redeemed Christian Church of God , Ikeja GRA , Lagos .
In an exclusive chat with Saturday Beat , the actress said she had yet to recover from the loss of her only child .
“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 ,” she said .
When asked if she had ever thought of adopting a child , the veteran actress said it would happen in God ’s time .
“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 ,” she said .
The pastor , who anchored the thanksgiving ceremony commended Anunobi , saying that despite the loss of her child, she was still able to successfully complete some major pastoral leadership programmes.
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.
 However , she insisted that she would not like to go into details about how it happened yet .
“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 ,” she told Saturday Beat .
