I thought no one will marry me - Happily married albino shares her story

A beautiful albino woman has shared the inspiring story of how she got married even after she thought no one would date her.

Now, Gaje who is a YouTube content creator, singer/songwriter and poet model/makeup stylist ambassador is happily married with two cute kids who are not albinos.

“When I interviewed this lady a while back, she said that she felt no one would love her and she would never find a husband because of the colour of her skin due to albinism. But God stepped in.

She met her man who confessed that his friends tried to discourage him from marrying an albino .. “of all the girls around, it’s an albino you want to marry”?

They said to him. But he followed his heart and married her!

Then she got pregnant and then came the nagging worry that she might give birth to an albino who would be bullied for his colour as she was in school. But when her baby was tenderly placed in her arms, she cried as he came out looking like his father…dark skin, melanin!

She continued saying that shortly after marriage, Gaje took in and welcomed her first child and then the second. Interestingly, none of her two kids suffer albinism.

In her words; "And then came baby number 2 and again, not a trace of albinism !! Grace, Grace!! She has no regrets about being born with albinism and urged others like her not to fall into despair, but feels sad that society has not understood that God does not do colour!!"

Underneath it all, our blood is none other than red!! God, does not do colour!!”
