Uniqueness is one of a newborn’s most endearing qualities. They are accepted regardless of appearance, beliefs, background, or parental actions.
Then there are the exceptional newborns. Photographer Judith Nwokocha, who is half Nigerian and half Canadian, has identical twins.
Kamis, Judith’s kid, is a black man from head to toe. The other half of the pair is his albino twin sister Kachi.
According to reports, Judith was aware she was expecting twins because “I recall going for my first scan and they told me “you are having a baby,” and I said no, I’m having two,” she reportedly remarked.

We discovered we were expecting twins during our second ultrasound, and I was told that one or both babies might have Down syndrome.
The doctors warned me that Kachi might not make it since she was born seven weeks late, was very little, and had stopped developing.
I was worried, “What’s going to happen?” since she didn’t cry. I’m worried about her behavior.
I refused to accept it because I thought they had handed me someone else’s child.
After processing the news, Judith said, “I was simply delighted she was perfect—both were healthy, and they just made me anxious for nothing.”
She could be me if it weren’t for the fact that we are different races.
Kachi is an almost ideal young woman despite her fragile skin and vision impairment. Judith knows she stands out as she walks down the street but doesn’t mind.
“I was extremely anxious about what others would say because having an albino and a black kid is not normal,” she said. “It took me a moment to realize I’m going to be parenting an albino.”
I was agitated because I worried about how others would react to her in public.
Judith claims that her twins get along well, treating each other like siblings and that their mother doesn’t think “they’ve noticed anything unusual.”
