When Ruby Ashby was born it was love at first sight.
A smiling, happy baby with a bubbly personality, her parents thought she was perfect.
But they were concerned that as she got older she would face problems other children didn’t have to worry about.
Ruby was born with a large mole on her head, covering almost a quarter of her tiny face and reaching down into her eye area.
Dark brown in colour, it is also mostly covered in hair.
“We’re just calling it a birthmark – we had the tests and it’s all clear for now but who knows what could happen in the future,” Ruby’s mother Natalie Ashby, from Towradji on the NSW south coast, says.
