Ojuolape Asuquo, Cobhams Asuquo’s Wife has opened up in an interview that their son, David was born blind.
She narrated how she discovered her son was blind four months after delivery in the United States of America.
According to her, as at the point of birth, everything seemed fine. But upon returning to Nigeria, after a series of tests, doctors discovered that her son was not “following”.
This led to a series of tests both in and outside the country where it was confirmed that he, (her son) could not see.
Mrs Asuquo admits that she found the situation quite unbelievable and it shook her faith, because “it feels like you are not getting answers”. This is especially as the doctors could not place what exactly was wrong since the physiology of her son was perfect.
At the point where she was not getting any answers, she totally lost it. She was in fear and started questioning if she did not pray enough or was negligent.
Despite it all, Ojuolape believes she is now going through a journey and she is making progress which is why she can share this story in the open.
