LOSING A CHILD IS PAINFUL AND IT’S SOMETHING I WOULD NEVER WISH ANY PARENT TO GO THROUGH. I LOST MY MOTHER IN 2014 AND I THOUGHT IT WAS THE MOST PAINFUL THING BUT THIS TIME ROUND, IT’S PAINFUL I CAN’T DESCRIBE. I’M CONFUSED, I’M DOWN AND CRASHED.
I DON’T KNOW HOW IT IS GOING TO BE. I’M TRYING TO COPE. I’M TAKING THINGS ONE DAY AT A TIME LAKINI NI NGUMU SANA (IT’S VERY HARD).
