She said: I was shocked- I thought they had handed me somebody elses baby, I didnt believe she was mine.

It never crossed my mind I was going to have an albino baby, we dont have any in my family, nor my husbands family.

It was a real shock for me, I was thinking “what are they doing, why did they give me someone elses baby?”.

The photographer from Calgary, Canada, was told Kachi was behind her brother in growth and development at seven weeks pregnant.

But I was just glad she was perfect- both were healthy and they just made me be stressed for nothing.

Kachi was diagnosed of Oculocutaneous Albinism (OCA) type 2, an inherited condition where people do not produce sufficient melanin (pigment), affecting their eyes, skin and hair.

One in every four children have chances of being affected, when both parents carry the Albinism gene.
