children of parent with albinism

I'm searching for information on the children of a parent with albinism. The mother is the spoken individual, with Oculocutaneous albinism type 1, and of Middle Easter/Indian descent. The father is Caucasian, brown hair, brown eyes, and is not a carrier of the gene.

If they were to have a child, would they simply take on the traits of the father alone, or could the mother's original genes still be accessible, and allow the child darker skin and black hair, for example?

Search strings were varying combinations of "albinism, albino, children and mothers" and so on, with results that only seemed to bring up mothers of children with albinism.

Any insight on this would be awesome. Thank you!
