Little Girl Born With A White Patch Of Hair Which Is Exactly The Same As Her Mum’s

We’re not sure what the odds are of four people in one family having the same white patch of hair, but we’re pretty sure they’re pretty slim. Still, that’s exactly what happened when little MilliAnna Worthy from Ridgeland, South Carolina, was born. The little girl, now 18 months old, has the same distinctive genetic inheritance as her mother, Brianna, as well as her grandmother and great-grandmother.

The white locks are caused by poliosis, a condition that creates a lack of pigment in the hair and surrounding skin. “We are unsure how far back the hair color and skin discoloration goes as my grandmother was adopted as a child and hasn’t met her biological family,” Brianna told the Daily Mail. “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, but once I had my beautiful baby and they laid her on my chest, and I saw she had it I was so happy.”

“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

“I was hoping she did have it. My younger sister that my mother had a few years after me didn’t, so I didn’t know if MilliAnna was going to”

“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”

“I plan to raise my daughter knowing she is beautiful and special and to not listen to people mean comments at times”

I'm a kid, and I can say pretty much everyone I know would think this is SUPER COOL and nothing to be ashamed of. Maybe there are some jerks out there who will tease her, but then she'll be able to find out who her true friends are!
