sometimes even the hardest love & the strongest fight isn't enough.
Then he added he, Kelly and their son Jackson, are "doing Ok." A day before her daughter's death, Kelly told PEOPLE a little bit about Adelaide. She said,
"Oh, she was feisty as hell, She is a warrior. I have never met someone stronger in my life. She shared her opinions in her own way. She came into the world and she had a mission and a story. I'm so proud that no one will ever forget her."
*NEW BLOG POST* “Dear Adelaide,”— Kelly Cervantes (@KellyGC411) September 27, 2019
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 💔💜https://t.co/okT9b5WPYs
Kelly also revealed that her older son Jackson was always there to protect his baby sister. "He is what keeps me strong," Kelly told PEOPLE. "He runs around the house and brings an energy that we need."
The clearly heartbroken mother continued by stating that their son is their strength during this period, and he is the one who gets them out of bed and on their feet.
Miguel also revealed that he will be taking a short break from the Hamilton show. May Adelaide's soul rest in peace.
