After His Wife Died Giving Birth, This Heartbroken Father Is Dedicating His Life To His Quadruplets.

When Carlos and Erica Morales realized they were going to be parents, they were as excited as could be. They had tried before, but their efforts had ended in miscarriage. This time, the couple decided to go through fertility treatment and were shocked to find out that Erica was expecting three girls and a boy. But their happiness vanished when Erica, at seven months pregnant, underwent a C-section. After delivering all four babies, Erica went into hypovolemic shock, lost a massive amount of blood, and died within hours. “I went from having the best day of my life to the next morning experiencing the worst day of my life,” Carlos said. “My four babies came into the world and then my wife died.”

Though dealing with the devastating loss of his wife, Carlos and his quads are pulling though. Friends and family are supporting him as he cares his beautiful children, Carlos Jr., Tracey, Paisley, and Erica. Carlos told People, “These babies don’t know yet what blessings they have given me. They have given me four reasons to live.”

The new dad is also receiving the support of strangers through a GoFundMe page that Erica’s best friend, Nicole Todman, set up. “The expense of raising 4 children alone is quite daunting for any middle class family now the with the loss of Erica’s income her husband will need all the help he can get,” Todman writes. Since the page was posted, donations have reached more than $332,000 toward the $500,000 goal.
