Adelaide Cervantes, 3, the daughter of Hamilton Star Miguel Cervantes and Kelly Cervantes, died Saturday morning, her mother announced on Twitter Sunday night after suffering from a neuro-degenerative disorder and the baby girl had been under hospice care for the last several days.
Kelly Cervantes posted an image of the late child’s room with a powerful message in memory of her daughter, “The machines are off. Her bed is empty. The quiet is deafening.”
“Adelaide left us early Saturday. She went peacefully in her mother’s arms, surrounded by love,” the message went on. “Finally, she is free from pain + seizures but leaves our hearts shattered. We love you so much Adelaideybug and forever after.”
Kelly Cervantes wrote in a tweet, “Dear Adelaide,” This week’s blog post was difficult to write, harder to put out into the world and maybe even harder yet for some to read. Your love and support has lifted us up and will continue to do so in the days ahead. Thank you.”
When Adelaide Cervantes was a baby and experienced her first seizure when she was seven months old in May 2016.
The first seizure came when Miguel Cervantes was auditioning for, and landing, the titular role in the Chicago production of Hamilton.
Doctors determined that the seizure was caused by epilepsy and Adelaide was admitted as she continued to have seizures that doctors struggled to fully comprehend.
When she was just nine months, Adelaide Cervantes was diagnosed with Infantile Spasms, a rare epilepsy syndrome in infants.
“They would like to extend their deepest, heartfelt gratitude to all who have reached out with words of support and prayer and will continue to feel all the love as they go through this difficult time,” in their statement Monday the family thanked those who had supported them, “Miguel will be out of the show briefly but plans to return soon.”
