Mama Said Don't Take No Tea for the Fever!
by Sheila Kendall-Welch
This heart-retching true story is about a courageous, brave woman named Sheila who entered into this world with her eyes open to a life of abandonment. A newborn baby left alone in a rooming house by her mother, she was rescued and taken to MaMa, her grandmother, who received her lovingly with open arms.
MaMa struggled each day running a speakeasy, making moonshine whiskey among other money-making ventures to care for the child—while Sheila’s mother, Orrie Belle, worked in a house not far as a call girl, rejecting her daughter.
Sheila was ripped away from the arms of MaMa at the age of seven by the police and her mother to be introduced to a life of prostitution, heartbreak, and having her sweet innocence taken away, living and trying to survive in an adult’s world—in the ghetto.
About the Author
Sheila Kendall-Welch was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. She was a child growing up who dreamed of being a great woman one day but never had the opportunity to excel in her dreams.
Sheila was inspired to write while living in a homeless shelter for three and a half years. She never wrote about the birds and the bees or meeting a handsome prince, riding away into the sunset on a beautiful white horse. She never lived that kind of life nor felt what it was like not having to survive every day.
“Wherever God leads me,” she says, “I never want to forget where I came from or my people I left behind. There’s no life if the suffering can’t take the ride with me.”
