Nature is really a box of surprises, and the story we’re about to see is an example of that. Francis and Arlette Tshibangu were in total shock when they saw their child for the first time. Both of them are of African descent, so they were very confused when doctors placed a blond-haired white baby with in their arms.
“I was too stunned to speak and I could see the doctors looking at each other, thinking the baby couldn’t be mine.” The husband knew that his wife was faithful, but he was very confused by the appearance of the newborn. Francis was even more convinced that this boy was his son after watching him closely.
“When I bent down and kissed him I got a better look at his features and could see he looked just like me and Arlette. He has my nose and my wife’s lips”, said Francis.
The weirdest thing of this story is that the doctors did tests and found that the baby is not an albino, and the geneticists are not sure how this may have happen. The couple believes that the baby’s skin color may be related to Arlette’s great-great-great-grandmother. According to relatives, she also had fair skin.
“All we can say is that Daniel is our miracle and, though we are shocked by his white skin, we feel very blessed.” Arlette was also shocked to see the white baby in her arms, but she loved him from the first moment! “Like any mom who has just given birth, my main concern was that he was healthy, which he is”, he added.
“I know there will be some who say my wife has had an affair but I trust her completely and know that isn’t the case”, he said. “Even if she’d had an affair with a white man, you would expect a mixed-race baby with black hair, not a white baby with soft blond hair like little Daniel.”
“To us, his skin color isn’t important,” Francis said. “The most important thing is that we have a healthy little boy who we love very much.” Nature really is a mystery… We wish them and ther child the best! If you liked it, share this story with your friends and family.
