In a heartwarming encounter that has captured the world’s attention, two-year-old Adik Missclyen, hailing from the serene town of Bintulu, has become Malaysia’s darling as she defies all odds with an infectious smile. This little warrior has earned the endearing nickname “Child from Heaven” from none other than Malaysia’s royal family.
Born with congenital generalised hypertrichosis, a rare condition that triggers excessive facial and upper body hair growth, Adik Missclyen’s journey has been one of courage, resilience, and love. Her condition, often labeled ‘werewolf syndrome,’ might seem intimidating, but Adik’s spirit shines through, illuminating her path to acceptance and appreciation.
The enchanting chapter unfolded when the Sultan and Queen of Malaysia, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah, graced Bintulu with their presence. It was on this monumental day that Adik Missclyen, alongside her devoted parents, Roland Jimbai and Theresa Guntin, got to meet the royal couple.
In an act of pure kindness, Sultan Abdullah and Queen Tunku Azizah referred to Adik as ‘anak syurga,’ a phrase that translates to ‘a child from heaven.’ Their embrace of this young soul radiates warmth and compassion, symbolizing a message of acceptance and inclusivity that resonates far and wide.
The heartfelt encounter did not end there; the royal couple took the time to pose for pictures with the family, sharing their message of love and acceptance with the world. Roland Jimbai, Adik’s father, expressed his overwhelming happiness at the encounter, stating, “It was worth the wait when Sultan Abdullah, Tunku Azizah, and their children met up with our family and took pictures with Missclyen. I am incredibly happy that we had the chance to meet the King and Queen. I am still at a loss for words.”
Sultan Abdullah’s words of encouragement further fortified the family’s spirits as he advised Mr. Jimbai to “take care of Missclyen as she is God’s blessing.” The emotional Mr. Jimbai added, “I hope to meet the royal couple again if possible,” a sentiment that resonates with the hearts of all who have followed Adik’s journey.
Adik Missclyen’s story transcends the boundaries of her rare medical condition. It is a testament to the strength of family, the power of acceptance, and the enduring message that love conquers all. While her unique appearance might have drawn unwarranted stares and remarks in the past, her family’s unwavering support and the royal embrace have turned the page to a brighter chapter.
Despite the challenges she faces, Adik’s health remains robust, and she receives regular medical check-ups as a precautionary measure. The loving bond between her parents and the resilience of this young ‘Child from Heaven’ inspire us all to embrace differences and celebrate the beauty in our uniqueness.
Adik Missclyen’s story has touched hearts globally, reminding us that acceptance and love have the power to transform lives and create a world where every child, regardless of appearance or circumstance, can be celebrated as a blessing from above.
