Nkem and her husband, Innocent

The birth of baby Vincent was something she had longed for. Her biggest life’s desire was to be a mother and she would have made an amazing mother but she never got the opportunity to experience all the beautiful moments she was dreaming of. She will never get to hear his first words, see his first smile or hear his cooing like all new mothers do. COVID-19 with its cruel and unrelentless form has quickly, unapologetically, and heartbreakingly taken her away days after she had her baby. It has shattered what was supposed to be a young family of 3 and has left behind a single father with a baby to raise said a family friend.

The husband is a nurse working frontline in helping COVID patients and it’s very tragic that COVID has taken the love of his life. Nkem and Innocent are both natives of Nigeria.
