The moment when you finally get to lay eyes on your newborn for the very first time is often regarded as the most thrilling moment of the labor and delivery process, if not the only one. The first time you get to hold your newborn child is a moment that will change your life forever. In addition to that, it is always a lot of fun to observe who the baby looks more like – did they get your nose? They managed to grab your lips, didn’t they? Those who are preparing to become parents often fantasize about this moment, but occasionally it takes them by surprise.
It took Judith Nwokocha two cycles of in vitro fertilization (IVF) before she was able to conceive, so you can imagine how excited she was when she learned she was carrying twins. Throughout her whole pregnancy, Judith maintained a conversation with her unborn twins and prayed for their wellbeing. Judith went into labor right away at 37 weeks of pregnancy because one of her twins had stopped developing. Her son, Kamsi, weighed 6.1 pounds at birth, while her daughter, Kachi, weighed just 3.5 pounds when she was born.
She gave birth to her twins by cesarean section. But it wasn’t the only thing that stood out about Kachi; she had other peculiarities as well. Judith put it like thus in an article for the Love What Matters website: “When I first saw her, I wasn’t sure whether the nurse was bringing me my daughter or someone else’s. I thought she may be someone else’s. I waited for a few seconds in the hopes that someone would inform me that there had been a mistake made, but all the nurse could say was how lovely she was.”
Judith, who is black, had never given any thought to the possibility that she may give birth to a white child; nonetheless, it is clear that her daughter was of the white race when she was delivered. Judith said that she was astonished by how white her subject was. Judith was informed that one of her twins, Kachi, had albinism a few days after the birth of the twins.
Although Judith was originally worried about the potential health complications that are sometimes associated with albinism, she rapidly became aware of how remarkable her daughter is. Judith went on to explain:
“Because she really has a stunning appearance, I never fail to compliment her on it. If someone offered me a million dollars to change her condition, I wouldn’t take it since she’s wonderful in every other aspect. Albinism may come with its share of difficulties, but I’m raising her to be resilient and capable of overcoming any obstacle that life throws her way. Through my consistent photography of her and her twin brother, I want to shed light on the positive aspects of albinism. It’s possible that she isn’t yet conscious of the fact that she is one of a kind, but I’m certain that she will be at some point in the future. Because of this, it is my duty to educate her and show her that she should always appreciate who she is, regardless of the circumstances.”
