Mom Got Replica Of Son's Birthmark To See What Life Is Like For Him. And She Was Surprised By Reactions
Shortly after babies are born, they can develop various skin conditions. Some of them go away after a few days. But some are birthmarks that will stay with people throughout their lives.
Little Enzo Cestari was born with a congenital melanocytic nevus. His unique birthmark covers his forehead and stretches down one side of the baby’s nose.
His mother Carolina is very proud of her boy, and she vows to never hide the dark birthmark and ensure her son knows he’s perfect the way he is. But the 26-year-old noticed how other people look at and react to her son, so she decided to walk in Enzo's shoes for one day:
It was very difficult to see and feel the eyes of society flickering my son with looks of pity, contempt, scare and sometimes disgust.
Carolina asked her friend, who's a professional makeup artist, to create the exact same look that her baby son has on her face. And when she got home – the boy was beaming with happiness and joy.
The mom then spent the whole day wearing the makeup. Of course, there were people who looked at her with the same expression they looked at her child, but that didn’t upset her and only made her stronger and braver.
The mom and the son took pictures together and shared them on various social media platforms.
And there were so many words of encouragement and comfort that Carolina couldn’t help her emotions.

But there were also those who didn’t appreciate the mom’s tribute. Instead, some even suggested her get a tattoo to celebrate the uniqueness of Enzo.
I'd have more respect for her if she got a permanent tattoo instead of the 1 day publicity stunt— sylsupino (@SamSupino) May 22, 2018
This makes no sense. That is makeup. What will he think when she washes hers off, tomorrow?— Amy Newtson (@AmyNewtson) May 22, 2018
