The two girls from Kazakhstan, Asel and Kamila Kalaganova, were born into the same family 12 years apart.
Kamila, 2, and her elder sister Asel, 14, have an eight-year-old brother, Aldiya, who has a more conventional Kazakh appearance.
Asel says that people are surprised by their appearance, and “many people do not know what albinos are.”
When her mother, Aiman Sarkitov, brought the girl to this world, she was very surprised.
Even the doctors were puzzled too, and many suspected that the girl had an ethnically Russian father.
Aiman explained: “When I gave birth to my eldest, genetics was not so developed with us. It is developing only now. The doctors were shocked and thought that she was Russian. Then I started reading about this matter, I have learned that my children are albinos.”
She eventually found out that some of her ancestors were albinos.
