Because of a non-standard birthmark, a one-year-old girl is either ridiculed or pitied with all her might, and her mother cannot come to terms with this. The woman is sure: such a feature is not a defect, but a “kiss of an angel”. Now she wants to show everyone that wine stains are beautiful and should not be hidden.
Marianne Bowering is a 27-year-old resident of Adelaide , who works as a beautician and raises a daughter named Angelica with her husband Corey. The baby is only a year old, but, even if she herself does not know this, she already has fans and haters on the Internet.
The fact is that Angelica was born with an unusual purple birthmark on her face. This feature is called a port-wine stain, a flaming nevus, or even an angel kiss, and it is associated with the wrong location and development of capillaries.
Doctors consider such spots to be one of the most harmless vascular pathologies, since they do not affect the internal organs. Port-wine stains are most common on the face, but can appear anywhere on the body.
The mother of the baby told the Daily Mail that she and her husband were not at all worried about her daughter, as soon as they were convinced that the stain was not associated with any developmental delays and did not affect her eyes. Angelica is completely healthy and undergoes regular check-ups.
Marianna lovingly perceives the stain on her daughter’s face and of all the names for him prefers “angel’s kiss”. She believes that this is part of the girl’s unique beauty that needs to be shown to people, and not shy and hidden.
The woman even created an Instagram page for Angelica to show that birthmarks are not a defect.
I think it’s important to tell people about this condition and normalize it in society. We too rarely see people with such features on TV and in the newspapers.
But not all commentators on social networks calmly perceive Angelica’s birthmark. Haters and trolls often leave comments under the girl’s photos, from which her mother becomes uneasy.
They literally abuse the child. She is not yet two years old, and it’s just disgusting.
Some of the bad jokes found on the baby’s page look just awful.
Everyone will look at her and laugh at her, and not a single guy will like her, I would be sad if this was my child.
Commentators often say that Angelica’s face scares them and that she will never have a boyfriend. And some people do not understand why a mother puts her daughter on display and seems to show off her feature.
I think it’s not necessary to draw attention to her face with a mark. That’s all. Don’t be offended, you’re a great mom!
I don’t care what they say. I don’t want to hide my daughter from people because of this. I think she is beautiful.
The most offensive was when at a football match one guy told me that she was “defective”. He just said it and left. I was shocked.
In addition, many people express sympathy for the baby and her parents or make embarrassing compliments.
What I hate the most is when people tell me that she can just put on makeup when she’s older. Why should she hide it? Maybe she wants not to be ashamed of her appearance!
Marianne is annoyed when commentators on the Internet write that her daughter is “beautiful anyway”, because such compliments mean “despite the defect”.
As her daughter grows older, the woman is going to show her that the port wine stain makes her beautiful and unique and that her special appearance should be proud of. At the same time, Marianne, of course, worries about Angelica.
I’m worried about what she might encounter at school. I hope that by that time people will be more educated and enlightened.
However, this mother definitely believes in her daughter.
She is such a brave little girl and she is not afraid of anything. I’m sure she can handle everything. She is more than her birthmark. She is a person.
