Beautiful baby girl born with unique condition that causes dark spots all over her body

This gorgeous baby girl was born with a unique condition that causes dark spots all over her tiny body.

Jireh, a happy, healthy, and loved baby girl, was born in June 2021. Her mom and dad, Toneka,32, and Justin, 34, have known each other ever since high school and have been together for 17 years.

Toneka, who works as a quality analyst, said:

“Justin and I are high school sweethearts. We dated for nine years and had our eight-year wedding anniversary in February. After attending college and working in separate states, we married and settled in Dallas in 2013.”

While she was still pregnant, she kept regular appointments with her doctor. Moreover, she carried out several tests to ensure that everything went smoothly.

However, when baby Jireh came into this world, the couple was seriously concerned about her health as she was born with dark spots all over her skin. Thankfully, the doctors comforted the mom and dad that their newborn’s condition was superficial and she was in perfect health.

As Daily Mail reveals, Jireh was diagnosed with Congenital Melanocytic Nevus (CMN) – visible pigmented (melanocytic) proliferation in the skin that is present at birth. It is caused by insufficient development of pigment cells in the first trimester of pregnancy.

Initially, Toneka and Justin created an Instagram profile for their baby girl to simply keep their friends and family posted.

Little did they know that thousands of people would fall in love with Jireh’s appearance. She now has over 12,000 followers on the social media platform.

The loving parents are now excited their little one will grow up in a world that is becoming more accepting of differences.

Tragically, in 2019, the couple went through a terrible heartbreak. Toneka recalled:

“In 2019, we became pregnant with our first child, Justice. She was born early at 28 weeks, but her prognosis was excellent, and she was expected to make a full recovery. We lost her unexpectedly at four weeks old. 

Five months later, we learned that we were pregnant with Jireh. While still mourning, we began the process of a high-risk pregnancy. I had numerous appointments and tests to ensure the safety of this pregnancy.”

The first time Justin saw his baby girl, he exclaimed: “What’s that on her face?”

Hearing these words petrified Toneka. After losing her first child, she couldn’t bear the thought of losing Jireh too. She said:

“My heart dropped when he said that, due to the loss we had just experienced, but once my doctor said it was just pigmentation marks and she wasn’t in pain, my heart relaxed. The moment he said it was just skin pigmentation, nothing else mattered. It meant that my baby wasn’t in danger of dying, I couldn’t fathom losing another daughter.”

The mom added:

“The moment my husband laid her on me, all was right with the world. Jireh is perfectly healthy, and all her tests have come back normal.”

The couple is now on a mission to help Jireh fall in love with herself. 

Toneka said:

“Today’s generation is all about inclusion and embracing differences. There are so many stars, like Winnie Harlow and Seal, whose skin looks different. They’re still accepted for their talents. I’m sure she will receive some less than favorable comments, but her confidence will be able to withstand ignorance.”

She continued:

“Most adults tend to ask about her skin if they are curious, and we don’t mind educating them… CMS is just a condition. It doesn’t define Jireh or make her less than anyone without it.

My hopes for her are endless. I pray that we can be the best parents to her and grant her heart’s desires. I talk to her about it. I treat her like any other child, because she is any other child. I call her beautiful, because she is. I love her skin and I let her know that every day.

I will teach her that nobody’s opinion of her matters except her own. Confidence is key. My parents instilled in me that I was beautiful – we plan to do the same for her.”
