The debate around birthmarks being genetic or random has gone on for the longest time. While some say these marks appear randomly, others believe the gene game has an important role to play in their occurrence.
The latter turned out to be a very happy reality for MilliAnna Worthy of Ridgeland, South Carolina. MilliAnna was born with her mother’s distinctive white fringe. And 18 months later, it looks even better!
The girl’s hair color is pretty unique, and that’s for a good reason – it’s caused by a rare condition called 𝘱𝘰𝘭𝘪𝘰𝘴𝘪𝘴. The condition causes an insufficient pigmentation in the skin and the hair surrounding it – that’s why that white patch appeared.
“We are unsure how far back the birthmark goes as my grandmother was adopted as a child and hasn’t met her biological family,” Brianna said.
Brianna has always been hoping that her daughter would also have the distinctive trait. As one of Brianna’s younger sisters didn’t have it, the soon-to-be mom wasn’t sure if her daughter was going to inherit it.
“But once I had her and they laid her on my chest and I saw she had it I was so happy”
“I grew to end up really loving it in my hair and was confident that it was my own unique signature look”
Brianna grew up believing that her hair was her distinguishing feature. Brianna said, “I intend to raise my baby knowing she is beautiful and wonderful, and not to listen to people’s nasty words at times.”
Hopefully, one day there will be no anger and rude comments in the world, especially toward such beautiful and unique people as Brianna and her little princess, MilliAnna.
