This couple shows us the true meaning of true love and beauty!
Nowadays, whether we admit it or not, appearance is a big deal for every person. Perhaps it is human instinct to judge a person’s worth by what they see with their naked eyes. Even in the Old Testament, David was disregarded by his father to be chosen as King because of his lack of stature.
“But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart,’” (1 Samuel 16:7).
God’s Word leads us to the truth that although the world looks at a man’s appearance, we should learn to see a person’s worth by looking deep into their hearts. And definitely, man of God, Edmilson from Ceara understands this heart of God very well.
Recently, 23-year-old, Edmilson, got engaged to his 28-year-old girlfriend Karine de Souza. What’s more surprising is that regardless of knowing Karine’s disease, he never hesitated to be betrothed to her.
Karine has been diagnosed with a rare skin disease called “Xeroderma Pigmentosum”. Due to extreme sensitivity to ultraviolet rays (UV), the moment it hits the skin, it causes depigmentation and skin lesions in the person. According to research, this has no cure. In Karine’s case, the disease left marks and lesions all over her body, which would be reason enough for her to have very low self-esteem and even avoid contact with other people.
However, even if that was her case, that didn’t stop her from living a normal life because her trust is upon God. She is well aware that people jud ge her by her looks, but she has put her confidence in God alone. This is what made Edmilson fall in love with her, beyond what eyes can see.

In a viral post from Daniel Panisson Fotografias it says:
“Have you ever felt love?
Have you ever thought about giving up a great love? Have you ever cared about appearance and forgot to worry about feeling?
Then I invite you to feel and live the story of Karine and Edmilson.
A story so beautiful and full of inspiration that will awaken you the most beautiful sense of life.
In a world where appearance matters more than the feeling, they met it was not by chance, it was a meeting of souls, a meeting of acceptance and character and love arose when their souls met and today you are the inspiration for so many people Who do not believe in themselves, in life and especially in love.
Karine De Souza,
28 years, natural from fortaleza.
Diagnosed with ‘xeroderma pigmentosum’.
A Rare, genetic, non-contagious disease that has no cure just treatment.
This disease creates injuries through contact with Ultraviolet light.
But for edmilson, 23, natural from ceará.
The disease did not stop living a beautiful and true love story.
And I can say, having portrayed the love of you brought me peace and a lot of inspiration for soul.
The acceptance, protection and all affection involved among you, made me see that love is not lost.
Karine’s acceptance made me see how useless we are to complain when we have a lot.
I only ask one thing, thank every day for being who you are.
Stop complaining for being what you are.
Embrace life, and accept.
Much gratitude for teaching me so much.
You guys are amazing.
You are the hope that is lacking in so many people.
Thanks for the strong hug, and for the wonderful day we live together.
I carry your smile with me forever.”
