KUCHING, Nov 1: “It felt like a dream”, exclaimed Theresa Guntin, the mother of a special baby, upon receiving a letter from Istana Negara stating that Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah wished to adopt her two-year-old daughter, Missclyen, who suffers from ‘werewolf syndrome’.

Missclyen Roland was born with congenital generalised hypertrichosis (CGH), an extremely rare condition that causes excessive facial and upper body hair, which is more commonly known as ‘werewolf syndrome’.

TVS reported that the mother of the special child expressed her gratitude on her personal Facebook page after Her Majesty’s message to Missclyen’s father, Roland Jimbai, stated that she would cover their daughter’s educational and medical expenses.

In September of this year, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and the Queen had the privilege of meeting Missclyen during the ‘Kembara Kenali Borneo’ tour in Bintulu.

During the meeting, the royal couple referred to Missclyen as ‘anak syurga’ (child of heaven).

According to several news outlets, apart from having hair all over her face, Missclyen was also born without nostrils.

Missclyen is the youngest child of Theresa and her husband, who are from Sangan, Tatau, in Bintulu. — DayakDaily
