Albino Sisters Born 12 Years Apart Goes Viral For Their Unique Beauty (15 Pics)

Albinism is a rare inherited disease characterized by a substantially lower rate of melanin production. Melanin is the pigment responsible for the color or hair, skin and eyes. It’s not often you see people with albinism, so doctors were surprised when Aiman Sarkatova of Kazakhstan gave birth to not one, but two albino babies.

Asel and Kamila Kalaganova were born 12 years apart and are now in high demand as models in their homeland.

“When my eldest was born, genetics were not so developed with us” says mom, Sarkatova “It is only developing now. The doctors were shocked and thought she was Russian. Then I started reading about this matter and I learned my children are albinos.”

“At the beginning, everyone was shocked, surprised. I did not know what to do with myself. I did not know how to live”

“If I go outside in the afternoon, then I definitely apply sunscreen, put on clothes to protect my skin, headgear or use an umbrella,” said Asel.

When she was younger, Asel went to a special school for handicapped children but later transferred to a regular one. “She studies perfectly well” says Sarkatova.

“Albinos do not differ much from other children, only their hair, eyelashes, eyes, and skin color. At first it was difficult, of course, the children stared at her. Now she feels good, we do not limit her to anything.”

Sarkitova said her son’s skin looks just like his father’s. “He is dark-skinned, a real Kazakh” she says. “Until the younger one was born, he did not ask any questions. Then he started to ask ‘Why are they like that? Why am I not like them, like my sisters?’ He realizes people are looking at the girls and even begins to boast, proudly telling people about his unique sisters.”
