At the birth of their first child, new parents may not always know what to expect. But one Fountain Valley couple was not prepared for what happened when their daughter was born. She came into the world with a feature some might call "ghostly," according to ABCLocal.go.com.



The site reports the day 6-week-old Hope Juarez entered the world, she was as white as a ghost. When doctors brought her to draw blood, they could barely get a drop.

"She was crying and they brought her over to us and she was really pale," said the baby's father, Josh Juarez. "I knew that something was really wrong when they started pricking at her feet trying to get blood to come out and there was no blood coming out."
