12-year-old Adalia Rose Williams became an internet sensation due to her rare genetic condition. She suffers from Progeria; a disease that causes her to age faster than a normal person. Due to this aging disease, at six years Adalia only weighed 14 pounds, equal to the weight of her baby brother.
Adalia's mother, Natalia Amozurrutia, set up a Facebook page to let people know that her daughter was suffering from a rare premature aging condition. But despite her efforts to inform everyone, the negative and spiteful comments didn't cease. Regardless of Adalia's condition, some unkind people still had the audacity to make her a target of hate. There were also a number of online hoaxes reporting her death.
Thankfully, little Adalia received more love than hate and this helped her to stay positive and happy with her life. On Adalia's website, her mom wrote a heartwarming message about her child.
“Adalia Rose Williams is an extremely beautiful child. She loves to sing, dance, color, play dress up and make-up.
