We are constantly afraid of the things that make us different and unique. We try our best to downplay it, to mix in and try to be a part of the society. What we ought to do is respect ourselves enough to let our differences shine through and respect and love others who are not like us. This baby girl here has the opportunity to be an example of the same principle for the next generation.
MilliAnna Worthy, born 18 months ago to Brianna Worthy, 23, from Ridgeland, South Carolina has the same condition as her mother which renders the front patch of their hair to be white.
“But once I had her and they laid her on my chest and I saw she had it I was so happy!”
This condition is known as Poliosis which makes the hair and the skin around it pigment-less.
The Mum was expecting her daughter to carry this distinctive trait.
“I was hoping she did have it. My younger sister that my mother had a few years after me didn’t get it, so I didn’t know if MilliAnna was going to.”
MilliAnna is the fourth generation of the family to have this condition.
It is clearly visible in her Mum, her grandmother, and great grandmother.
“We are unsure how far back the birthmark goes as my grandmother was adopted as a child and hasn’t met her biological family.” Said Brianna, MilliAnna’s mother.
Brianna hopes that her daughter grows up knowing that she is beautiful and special.
“I plan to raise my daughter knowing she is beautiful and special and to not listen to people mean comments at times.”
Don’t they remind you of Rogue from X-men?
Isn’t this little girl absolutely precious?
Celebrating uniqueness! 😀
