parents.jpgSince this blog is for the diversity of the world and because I have not posted this type of topic before, I thought it would be interesting to share this story. Looking at the picture, you probably think that the child on the right is adopted. Well, if you guessed that, you are wrong. Actually, they are both from the same parents not to mention they are twins.

With all the differences some societies create to try to distinguish one race from another, who we are genetically is all the same (99%). According to the Human Genome Project, there are about 35,000 genes that make us who we are. Only about 10 of those genes plays a role in determining skin color. Mother and father Kylie Hodgson and Remi Horder are themselves mixed race which increased the odds of the two twins’ different skin colors. So what are the odds of this happening– a million to one!

Celbrating the diversity of the world we live in may the children and their parents live happily!
