Why did Natalia create a Facebook page for Adalia?
Natalia created a Facebook page for Adalia Rose in 2012 when her daughter was only five years old.
She created the page to educate and inform people about her daughters’ genetic condition that speeds up the aging of children that affects only about 500 children worldwide.
Although Natalia received support for her and her young daughter, it was then that the cyberbullying began.
“At first I was very angry, at first, I was very upset and I didn’t understand what is wrong with these people?” Natalia told NBC Bay Area News in 2012.
The comments came in hard and fast with thousands calling Adalia ugly, wanting to hurt her, or telling her to kill herself.
“I will turn blue with saying that – educate, educate your kids,” she continued.
Despite the bullies, Adalia and her family were able to create a community and grow support for the genetic condition.
