Humankind’s fascination with birthmarks can’t be denied. A lot of birthmarks are inherited and come in diverse shapes. Because of this, many have come to wonder what the spiritual meaning behind their birthmark is.
When someone has a heart shaped bookmark, it is said that the person is likely to live a life filled with love. Truer words were never spoken for Cinar Engin, a very special baby from Turkey perfectly embodies love with the heart-shaped birthmark on his forehead.
If Harry Potter is known for this lightning bolt–shaped scar, then this baby will forever be remembered for the strategically placed heart on his forehead. When Cinar Engin was born, it was his father, Murat Engin, who first noticed the heart-shaped birthmark on his forehead. He told the Daily Mail:
“After a nurse cleaned the bloods on his head I was the first who see the birthmark on his head. I was really surprised. When I came close to his head, I realized that it was an amazing heart. It was difficult for me to keep my tears.”
It was almost as if little Cinar was thanking his loving parents for bringing him to the world. He became the talk of the nursery, with several of the hospital staff asking Cinar’s parents if they could take a selfie with the adorable baby.
Cinar, who is now 14 months old, is the first in the family who has a special birthmark.
This has prompted a lot of people to nickname him the “Love Baby.” Cinar has also attracted attention from strangers as a lot of people stop to take a photo with him in public. Murat added this sweet message for his son:
“It was really like a gift from God. None of us had negative feelings. We believe that he was born with his chance.”
Just by looking at the little boy’s photo, it is easy to see why he has captivated the hearts of so many people. He is sure to make anyone feel that pure and innocent love still exists in the world.
When parents Murat and Ceyda Engin welcomed baby Çinar into the world in 2015, they were delighted he was healthy and happy. However, there was more to Çinar than they knew, and it didn’t take long for Murat to realize it.
While a nurse cleaned the infant’s face after birth, the besotted parents stared at their blessing. Murat was stunned when he noticed a red mark on his son’s forehead.
Murat moved closer to baby Çinar and inspected the pink color on his skin. Then, the parents’ eyes filled with tears as they saw the mark he would carry for the rest of his life. Murat expressed:
“I was really surprised. When I came to close his head I realized that it was an amazing heart.”
The proud parents adored Çinar’s birthmark, but they had no idea how it would affect his life. People were drawn to their son, and he received a special nickname.
As nurses flocked around baby Çinar, they took selfies and stared in disbelief at the perfectly shaped heart on his head. One of the nurses shouted:
“Oh my good unbelievable, he is a love baby (sic).”
The mother and father soon learned that their son and his birthmark were true gifts from God. No one else in Çinar’s family had a unique birthmark, and dad Murat shared: “None of us had negative feelings. We believe that he was born with his chance.”
Members of the public wanted a chance to meet Çinar, and countless admirers stopped the family whenever they saw him. They loved taking photos with him, and he spread positivity wherever he went. Murat added:
“When we walk around, all people smile at us and love him. All of our friends are curious about his birthmark because of its heart shape.”
Whenever the family took their son for routine checkups, the medical staff immediately recognized Çinar. They had another name for him: “Hearted boy.”
