According to Eucharia Anunobi who lost her only son Joshua Ekwu to sickle cell anemia in 2017, cooking has lost its joy because he is not there to ask all those questions.
‘My home is so silent now without my son. Every time I peep into his room to see if he is there. When I drive back home, I long to see his smiling face radiating that joy of seeing me back.
“Cooking has lost its joy because he is not there to ask all those questions. My son, my baby, the most considerate child, adorable giant, I miss him.
Be that as it may, I want to use this medium to wholeheartedly appreciate God, the eternal rock of ages, the all-knowing emperor of the universe, the pillar of my life, for it all” .
Eucharia Anunobi, who recounted how being a single mother was not a deliberate decision in an interview 2 years ago, said;
“It was not a deliberate choice that I have made. It came by chance, it came by mistake. God does not kill His children who have made mistakes. He would rather sustain them and tell them that He is the owner of all things. The Lord has been sustaining me as a single parent. I don’t think about it, all I know is, ‘God, you are the one that created me and the child that you gave to me’. So whatever that is needed of me, it was a wrong choice that I made.
On whether she has made any attempt to reconcile with the father of her son, she said:
“When somebody says that I do not want to be a responsible father, what do you do? You don’t take a horse to the river and force it to drink.”
