A newborn infant, like any other human being, is gorgeous in their own right.
Angelica was born in 2018 to overjoyed parents and siblings. Her already gorgeous features were enhanced by a heart-shaped port wine stain. Unfortunately, not everyone recognized the significance of her one-of-a-kind stamp.
Angelica’s mother claims that her daughter is loved and embraced by the family despite her birthmark, but that some others believe they have the right to pass judgment on her appearance.
Someone asked whether she had pressed her face onto a griddle, and that was the worst comment I’d ever received on the internet.
Angelica’s mother, Marianna Bowering, told the Mirror that her daughter’s face appeared “grilled.”
Marianna also stated that her daughter has been referred to as “hideous” and a “defect” at times.
This had a severe influence on the family and added to the challenges they were already facing, but they were determined to overcome it.
Angelica’s family urged her to accept herself as she is, regardless of what others said.
Marianna painted her daughter’s face to resemble Angelica’s birthmark in the hopes that it would help her feel better.
“I got the idea from vascular birthmark awareness day, where they encourage people to paint a heart on the cheeks,” the mom said, according to The Epoch Times. “Initially I just did the heart with my makeup look but then I thought why don’t I go all out and do Angelica’s port wine stain.”
Whenever someone tried to ‘comfort’ Marianna that her daughter’s mark would eventually fade away or that she could hide it with makeup once she gets older only crushed this mother even more as she couldn’t help but wonder if Angelica would be forced to hide her natural beauty instead of embracing it.
It was a stark reminder that there are societal expectations for how a member of the group should look.
Angelica has been encouraged by her loved ones to accept and embrace her unique qualities. In an effort to make her daughter’s wine port stain sparkle, Marianna would sometimes cover it with glitter.
“Thankfully, we’ve done tests and Angelica is totally healthy,” Marianna said of her girl, referring to the fact that children with these types of birthmarks can develop other health conditions. “We just need to have regular check-ups, especially for her eyes as glaucoma can be a concern.”
We think it’s wonderful that Angelica is learning to accept and even celebrate her birthmark.
Don’t you think she’s a stunning young woman?
