Parents Are Sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ After Giving Birth To A Blond Baby Girl With Light Skin
Edith Garcia even doubted herself and wondered who the baby’s dad could be as she looked nothing like her or her husband.
Mother who questioned daughter’s parentage over fair complexion, is told her daughter was born with rare ᴀʟʙɪɴɪsᴍ. A mum-of-two was left confused and questioning herself when her baby girl was born with ɪᴠᴏʀʏ-ᴄᴏʟᴏᴜʀᴇᴅ sᴋɪɴ ᴀɴᴅ ʙʟᴏɴᴅᴇ hair.
Stay-at-home mum Edith Garcia was so shocked when her youngest daughter, Tatiana was born as she and her husband, Raul, are of Mexican-American descent. But the couple had both inherited the ᴀʟʙɪɴɪsᴍ gene and later discovered that some of their distant relatives have the condition.
After doing some thorough ʀᴇsᴇᴀʀᴄʜ from the National Organisation for ᴀʟʙɪɴɪsᴍ and Hypoᴘɪɢᴍᴇɴᴛᴀᴛɪᴏɴ, they found solace in other families going through the same thing. Tatiana’s ᴀʟʙɪɴɪsᴍ means that she has little to no ᴘɪɢᴍᴇɴᴛᴀᴛɪᴏɴ which has left her with white hair and fair skin. Due to her condition she has a lack of ᴘɪɢᴍᴇɴᴛᴀᴛɪᴏɴ in her eyes which means she has ᴘᴏᴏʀ ᴠɪsɪᴏɴ, ᴀ ʟᴏᴡ ᴅᴇᴘᴛʜ ᴘᴇʀᴄᴇᴘᴛɪᴏɴ.
