Yesterday, a reader, Cheryl, passed along this story. I did not have a chance to read it though until last night. It is the most amazing thing ever. Last week black parents in England gave birth to a white girl. Genetics departments in the UK are going crazy because the couple fit none of the factors on how something like this could have happened. Usually doctors would determine the baby is albino, but the baby has no albino characteristics. They would then look to the ancestors of the parents to see if there were mixed babies in the past. There are no mixed babies in the past. So, now everyone is dumbfounded how this happened.
Fascinating. Has anyone else ever heard of this?
