Grace Ekirapa has opened up about how heartbroken she was after she suffered a miscarriage before God blessed them with a daughter.
Speaking during an interview with Kalondu Musyimi, she shared
“I have experienced loss once after the death of my mum.
The only other close loss was that of my child after my miscarriage.
It was very devastating, I cried myself to sleep so many nights.
I thank God for my husband, he held my hand and told me we would be parents again.”
“The waiting season was hectic but am grateful. She came on her dad’s birthday.
This was God’s gift to us.”
Speaking on how supportive her husband Pascal Tokodi has been, she says,
“I am always on my phone checking if she is okay. The baby had jaundice and her stay was extended. Even my sisters were there the entire time. He has been with me since.
He has more nighttime with her than with me. I love that he is very proactive with Jasmine.”
Ekirapa revealed that during her delivery she had to make a quick decision that ended up saving her daughter’s life.
“My maternal instincts led me to make a decision that saved my baby’s life.
I am thankful I was keen enough to listen to my baby’s life.
If we didn’t make that decision early or maybe we chose something else it would have been fatal.”
The mother of one says she had hoped and prayed for a baby girl, the reason?
“We were believing God for a girl because all my sisters have boys so we wanted a girl.
Pascal is also born into a family of boys. That is why we named her Jasmine which means a gift from God.“
