Delilah, who is a radio show host, is now back on the air. She took a break after her son, Zack, passed away last fall. She stated that losing Zack was hard, but it did bring the family closer together. She also stated that her daughter found out that she was pregnant before Zack died.
This is the second child that Delilah has lost in the past five years. Her son Sammy died from sickle cell anemia in 2012. Zack committed suicide after a long battle with depression. A listener asked Delilah about books that they should read in order to cope with the loss of a child. She stated that there was not any book that could help.
Delilah also stated that the suggestions that people make have not helped her. She stated that being there for someone is the only thing that can help. Delilah is getting ready to adopt her 14th child. She had three biological children and 10 adopted.
There are 487,000 children who are in foster care. Only 5 percent of these children will have a forever home. She stated that adoption has been a blessing because many of the children would not have a home. She also stated that raising her children has been her world.
Delilah has given some advice that can help people who are going through a difficult ordeal. She stated that no one should go through life sweating the small things. She stated that when you sweat the small things, you take the joy out of living. Delilah’s show comes on The Sound 94.1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
