Lelah Amore Harris – the Pregnancy, Death and Funeral
The death of a child is the most painful experience for any parent, and it definitely was for Tiny Tameka Cottle-Harris. Soon after she got pregnant with her second baby by rapper and actor T.I. (aka Clifford Harris Jr.), she was warned by doctor’s that there may be complications with this pregnancy. The sac that holds the baby was split in two and even by the time baby Lelah Amore Harris turned 16 weeks old the sacs have not combined.
Doctors were worried that the child might be strangled by the umbilical cord. Whether that was the cause or not, the fetus’s heart stopped beating. When Tameka found out that her daughter Lelah Amore was dead, she became very depressed…
Tameka kept Lelah’s body in the room with her in a little basket, dressed in an outfit and wrapped in a blanket. After the funeral organized by Clifford, Tameka would often visit her daughter’s grave. As time went by, she started to visit the burial site less often because it was making her feel very sad and depressed each time.
