Brazillian Mother Who Has 3 Albino Children

Rosemere Fernanda de Andrade and ex-husband, Joao, are both blackbut 3 of their children Ruth, 14, Estefani, 12, and Kauan, 9 are albinos.While 3 other children Joao, 13, Rebeca, five and Maria, two, have a black skin. 

Her first child Ruth suffers from a rare genetic condition called albinism and has no pigment melanin in the skin, hair and eyes. Rosemere recalls her shock after she gave birth to her daughter, thinking that there must have been a mistake somewhere when she was handed a white baby. Doctors explained that both Rosemere and her husband must carry a gene for albinism, that means each time they had a child there was a one in four chance the child would have a mutation.

The mother spoke about the challenges of having children with the genetic condition, albinism. She said: “When I am with my children I get strange looks because we look so different. Once I was leaving a shopping centre with Ruth and Estefani and a security guard asked where their mother was. It used to make my angry but I am learning people need educating about what albinism is.”
