People magazine reported that Adelaide had her first seizure at about 7 months old and was eventually diagnosed with Infantile Spasms.

Miguel told ABC 7 Chicago earlier this month that his family was working to bring awareness about epilepsy. Kelly posted about the family’s journey on her blog, Inchstones. They also worked to raise money for “My Shot at Epilepsy.”

“I’m never going to ask why these things happen and oh, I’d give away all that I have to have Adelaide here,” he told People.  “But without her condition, we would have never met the strong and amazing people we are surrounded by right now. We have been giving this platform to talk about Infantile Spasms and epilepsy. And we have been given this platform to tell people about Adelaide. And that’s exactly what we intend to do.”

ABC 7 reported that Miguel was “handpicked” by Lin Manuel Miranda to play the lead role of Alexander Hamilton.
