18-month-old MilliAnna Worthy, from Ridgeland, South Carolina, was born with a white patch of hair right above the forehead, a very rare trait caused by poliosis, which creates a lack of pigment in the patch of hair and the skin around it. But even more unusual than the striking trait is the fact that it has been in MilliAnna’s family for at least four generations.
The girl’s mother, 23-year-old Brianna Worthy, has the same patch of white hair, and so do her mother, Jennifer, (41), and her grandmother, Jaonne, 59. “We are unsure how far back the birthmark goes as my grandmother was adopted as a child and hasn’t met her biological family,” the young mother says. “I was hoping she did have it. My younger sister that my mother had a few years after me didn’t get it, so I didn’t know if MilliAnna was going to, but once I had her and they laid her on my chest and I saw she had it I was so happy.”
