Mom on a mission to show daughter with extremely rare birthmark that she is beautiful

All of us are born uniquely special and irrefutably beautiful in our own way. One of the most breathtakingly fabulous things about being human is that no two of us are exactly the same, and as the years roll on we’re becoming far better as a species when it comes to accepting and celebrating our differences.

One mother is on a mission to prove the idea that we’re perfect due to our imperfections and aims to reaffirm that her baby daughter, who was born with a rare birthmark, is beautiful just the way she is.

As per Good Morning America, little Winry Hall was born with an extremely rare birthmark known as congenital melanocytic nevi or CMN. As a result, Winry, at 13 months old, doesn’t look like the children around her.

Her mother, Nicole Hall, explained: “When they first handed her to me, I thought it was a bruise. “It was then quickly apparent to my husband and me that it was not a bruise. And like the name, I thought it looked a lot like a mole.”

A report by the National Organization for Rare Diseases states that CMN can take the form of light brown or black patches, and can reach almost any size on any part of the body. Nicole and her partner now want to highlight their daughter’s uniqueness, in a bid to encourage others that being slightly different isn’t something to be ashamed of, but rather proud of.

“For a lot of people, this is the first time seeing a birthmark like hers and that’s part of why I enjoy sharing,” Hall said. “This is a good conversation for parents with their children to see kids have differences, or for those parents who do have a kid that looks like Winry or has any kind of a birthmark to see their child represented.”

Given that Winry’s birthmark could put her at an increased risk of developing melanoma (skin cancer), her parents take precautions to protect her skin. Nicole, though, said that she’s more worried that her daughter will encounter bullying when she grows older.

“Her health and happiness are our top priority. We have to monitor her with sunscreen. I’m careful with hats and that sort of thing,” Hall explained to Good Morning America. “I know our regular dermatology appointment is probably going to be our best friend growing up.”

As for how Winry sees the world, she’s a happy, energetic little girl without a care in the world. In short, she’s everything a baby should be. “She just radiates joy. She’s almost always laughing or shrieking,” Hall said. “She is just the happiest baby I have ever seen.

“She’s a big talker already. We haven’t got a whole lot of words out, but she tells you like it is and she’s already getting a little bit of sassiness, so I think we’re gonna have a lot on our hands.”

We here at Newsner agree that differences should be celebrated, and never mocked or looked down upon. We think Winry is a truly special little girl, and a beautiful soul to boot! Please, share this article on Facebook to send love and confidence to Winry’s way! And to show that you agree that all children are beautiful.
