When little MilliAnna Worthy from Ridgeland, South Carolina was born, she had exactly the same patch of white hair as her mother. It looks like her hair was dyed. But appartnly, this “birthmark” runs in their family. Her mother, her grandmother and great-grandmother all have the same patch of white hair.
The white hair is caused by poliosis, a condition that creates a lack of pigment in the hair and surrounding skin
“We are unsure how far back the birthmark goes as my grandmother was adopted as a child and hasn’t met her biological family,” Brianna said
“I was hoping she did have it. My younger sister that my mother had a few years after me didn’t, so I didn’t know if MilliAnna was going to”
“I grew to end up really loving it in my hair and was confident that it was my own unique signature look”
“I plan to raise my daughter knowing she is beautiful and special and to not listen to people mean comments at times”
