Asher and Winry Hall are lucky to have such a beautiful mom as Nicole Lucas Hall. A fierce warrior, just like any good mother. Even though Nicole seems to have a reasonably everyday life, she is on a mission: to recognize and cherish her daughter’s charm. Their daughter Winry, now 13 months old, was born with a peculiar birthmark that covers almost a quarter of her face.
They had never seen a birthmark like her daughter’s, and Nicole noted their first reactions was bewilderment and concern for her safety.
The doctors quickly allayed their fears that it was anything more dangerous. As Winry was born with an extremely rare congenital melanocytic nevus, CMN affects around 1 in 50,000 babies. They were reassured that the birthmark’s aesthetic effects would likely predominate and that any potential health hazards would be on par with those of other nevi or moles.
Even in their day-to-day lives, some people gawk or throw unwanted looks at Winry, and Nicole has heard plenty of negative comments and criticism since she started telling her daughter’s tale.
However, Nicole handled the situation with grace. She informed us that they both made an effort to make most of their social media answers educational since much of the negative feedback they got resulted from a misunderstanding. Nicole and her husband’s comedic response to rude and bigoted online commenters.
Besides that, they have been virtually entirely blown away by the generosity of strangers who have heard about Winry.
A big brother is a protector every young girl dreams of having. Asher, Winry’s brother, is kind, supportive, and attractive. Nicole claims that he has no idea that she is “weird.” He knows that she has a birthmark on her face, but he doesn’t find it any stranger than the fact that she has blue eyes instead of brown.
While it’s natural for a young boy like Asher to be jealous of Winry’s time with his mother, Nicole has faith that he will grow up as both Winry’s best friend and protector.
Every day, Nicole and her husband do all they can to keep Winry and her brother safe and to help them grow up with a strong sense of self-worth in light of their many gifts and qualities. Worried about how others may judge Winry, they express their concern by expressing anxiety.
According to what Nicole has said, one of their primary goals is to instill in Winry morals like compassion. They want Winry to be as happy in life as she is now, so they train her to be a fierce fighter and continually praise her stunning appearance.
Nicole knows that her family will always look out for her and lead her daughter only to those who will treat her with kindness and consideration. All that is important is that Winry knows she can always come home to her family.
Nicole is committed to raising CMN awareness via online channels; she hopes to inform people about Winry’s condition and inspire parents to instill an appreciation for individuality and difference in their children.
Even though Winry’s birthmark is quite uncommon, Nicole pointed out to Bright Side that there are still far too many families who can connect to and benefit from Winry’s story because of it.
They are very invested in their daughter’s happiness and will do whatever it takes to make her life easier. Nicole has aimed to dispel myths about birthmarks and promote acceptance. They see a day when Winry will have to travel someplace, meet someone new, and answer many questions about her looks, and they hope things will be different for her and other children in similar situations then.
