Black mother who has three white children

Rosemere Fernandes de Andrade and her partner Joao are dark-skinned Afro-Brazilians, yet three of their five children are white skin (albinos). Maybe this is strange for black parents to have white children, but it's not impossible. Because one thing for sure, we're all came from same father and mother (Adam and Eve). And look at we now, many sorts of skins.

Esthefany Caroline, Ruth Caroline and Kauan are as white as snow while their two other siblings have dark skin, just like their parents. Genetics professor Valdir Balbino of the Federal University of Pernambuco said this is a very rare occurrence considering the parents and two other children are black.

If people don't know about their story, maybe they won't thing that those 5 children are siblings. The children also have faced taunts by fellow pupils at their school.

Albino affects around one in 17,000 people. The Albino people is lack of melanin pigment in the eyes, skin and hair, or more rarely in the eyes alone. So their skin and eyes usually are very sensitive. Like those children, they often suffer from extreme short-sightedness and a severe sensitivity to light.
