A stunning, rare event occurred in the family of Angela and Ben from Nigeria in 2010.
Absolutely dark-skinned parents gave birth to a girl with white skin and white hair.
Moreover, the first two children of the spouses are the same as their parents – with dark skin. And the third Nmachi is special.
An angel or a gift from heaven?
This is exactly what parents call their unusual daughter. She was born in England because her parents moved there from Nigeria for permanent residence.
They already had two children, but, having moved to another country, they thought about a third. And in 2010, heaven gave them Nmachi.
When the girl was born, the parents had a real shock.
The girl’s father did not understand what was happening. The baby’s health was excellent, but her skin color was completely white.
Many people call Nmachi Snow White. The girl’s hair is curly, like her parents, but the color is completely different.
A professor from Oxford became very interested in an unusual girl. After all, she is the only one in the whole world. There were no more such incidents.
The professor confirmed that the reason is a failure in the genes. Because of this failure, the baby lacks the necessary pigment, which is responsible for the color of the skin, eyes, and hair. Moreover, the girl cannot even tan.
Scientists asked parents to do a DNA test to study the issue in more detail. Because albino children in a black family are just a miracle.
And although Nmachi is now the only one of her kind, in the future she will be able to pass the mutational gene to her children or grandchildren, this gene can manifest itself even after a hundred generations.
As for health, Nmachi is an absolutely healthy child, the color of her skin did not affect her condition in any way.
But in the team, the girl is not always accepted, it is very difficult for dark-skinned children to explain that Nmachi is the same as them.
By the way, the nurses in the hospital where the girl was born still remember her. Everyone considered Nmachi a real angel who descended from heaven.
After all, immediately at birth she had long white curls.
