Every baby that is born is special in their own way. However, some babies are more unique than others, and that is definitely the case for twins Catalina and Virginia Gomez!
Jorge Gomez and his wife were overjoyed when they learned that they were expecting twins.
The first surprise with the twins came when they were born prematurely. Catalina came into the world first weighing 5.95 lbs, and Virginia came two minutes later weighing 5.5 pounds. The next surprise came when the girls were born with completely white hair. The twins were albino.
Albinism is a condition in which someone does not have melanin pigment in their body. It also often comes with vision problems as well.
Caring for the twins will come with an unusual set of challenges, as they will need extra protection from the sun. Both girls will be very sensitive to UV rays from the sun and will have to limit their exposure.
Despite these challenges, Jorge and his wife could not be happier about having the girls.
”When they gave us the news that we would have two babies, it gave us a lot of happiness and when they were born and we saw that they were albinos, that happiness did not change at all. For us it is a blessing,” Jorge said.
These twins are lucky to have such amazing parents looking out for them! SHARE this story so your friends and family can see this as well!
