Former model, Sarah Ofili-Adukeh has come out to encourage Nigerian mothers. She recently shared a sad story of how she lost her pregnancy one month after her traditional wedding, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to her, it got so bad at some point that her husband had to pack her dead child to head to the cemetery when the disaster struck.
She added that 29th of Jan used to be the worst day of her life, but not anymore, as she now has 2 wonderful babies to call her own.
Her words, “As today ends I have decided to stop calling 29th of Jan the worst day of my life, but now as the day I gained 2 beautiful Angels. I celebrate them! Exactly 3yrs ago, 1 month after our traditional wedding we lost our beautiful set of twins, a boy n a girl.”
“I remember every pain n sweat and tear… I remember not even worrying about myself but staring at my husband wondering if he wld be ok, after seeing his babies go and still having to support me thru surgery how scary that most have been for him. I remember waking up from surgery n asking for him, I was told how he picked them babies up by himself put them in a box and carried them on his lap in the car all the way to the cemetery. Sat with them till all paper works were done and said goodbye to them on behalf of both of us coz he didn’t want me to wake up and deal with all that. All in one day!”
“To God be the glory we pulled through our first year of marriage with such heartbreak, also still dealing with my mums recovery and my husband losing his own mum…Whew! As I watch my daughter today I can’t help but wonder “is this what they would have looked like too?”… how sweet to know she’s all in 1! Today we had 2 butterflies around us constantly I thought oh well there they go watching us!”
