Willis Raburu Gets A Tattoo As A Tribute To His Late Daughter

Willis Raburu expressed his hurt and pain on social media when his wife gave birth to a stillborn.

The Citizen TV news anchor had been sharing his journey with his wife on social media and one of the things he was obviously excitedly looking forward to was fatherhood. At some point his wife faced backlash after claiming that she no longer believed in this God that would do something as take their unborn daughter. Willis wrote an emotional post on social media where he wrote a love letter to his daughter and it was heartbreaking.

Here’s what his post said:

My beautiful daughter, some days are easy some days are so hard. Today I woke up trying to imagine what it would be like to watch you sleep, ( that’s the only image I have of you) what it be like you hold warm fingers, what a sleepless night would feel like. What it would be like to go to work tired Koz you kept me up at night, who you would look like now? what color of your skin? if you would drink as much milk as I did when I was your age. My daughter, you are an angel now, or so they tell me and when I look up to the sky sometimes I cry, sometimes I laugh, I want you to make so much noise in heaven, or in the multi-verse you are in, I want you to have all your the people who are with you there say “Yeap that’s Willis’ child” I miss you so much, it’s funny that I have a picture of you but even before I look at it, your face is ingrained in my heart, etched in my soul, tattooed in my very essence. My daughter, my sweet lovely beautiful daughter, I’m sorry that you have to see daddy weak and in grief and not the pillar of strength that you and your mother need, but my daughter, daddy loves you since He listens to you talk to Him and tell Him, daddy doesn’t understand but daddy needs help. Rest In Palaces, RIP because you are royalty. ????????????????#QueenAdana

Different people express their hurt differently and for some, they use art as a way of expressing themselves. Mr. Raburu got this adorable photo of his late daughter’s name, as he always calls her Queen Adana.
