Every new baby is beautiful in its own unique way. It makes no difference what color they are, what race or religion they follow, who their parents are, or what they may have done in their lives.
And yet, some babies are truly one-of-a-kind; they stand out. This category includes the twins of Nigerian-Canadian photographer Judith Nwokocha, who are truly unique.
Judith’s son, Kamis, has dark skin, hair, and eyes. Meanwhile, his twin sister Kachi is an albino.
“I remember going for my first scan when they told me ‘you are having a baby’ and I said ‘ no , I’m having two’, I knew, without a doubt,” Judith explained, as per reports.
“The second scan revealed we’re having twins- I was told the twins might have Down Syndrome.”
“At 7 weeks, Kachi was always behind, was very small, and stopped growing; the doctors told me she might not make it; I’m so grateful she did.”
“She didn’t cry at first, so I was wondering what was going to happen and how she was going to be.”
“I was shocked- I thought they had handed me somebody else’s baby, I didn’t believe she was mine.”
“I was just glad she was perfect- both were healthy and they just made me be stressed for nothing”.
“Other than the fact that she is different colour, she looks exactly like me.”
Aside from her sensitive skin and poor eyesight, Kachi is a perfect little girl. Sure, she attracts some attention on the street, but Judith isn’t concerned, and she shouldn’t be.
“It took me a while to realise I’m going to be raising an albino- I was really concerned about what people were going to say, it’s not a very usual thing to have an albino and a black baby.
“I was also sad, I was worried about how she is going to go through society, how people are going to treat her.”
Judith says the twins have a loving brother-sister relationship, and their mother believes “they haven’t noticed anything different.”
