Madison County Health Director Kim Tedford confirmed the death in a press briefing on Wednesday morning, Aug. 5.
Gigi got sick recently and on Tuesday 4th August she went to see a doctor.

The Morse family has several blogs, each with thousands of subscribers, that document their married life with several children from international adoption.
Gigi was one of those kids. She was adopted from an orphanage in Ukraine when she was 3 years old.
