Take a look at the life of Carlos Morales, a single father struggling to raise his quadruplets after the ʟᴏss of his wife, Erica.
Carlos Morales is the father of quadruplets whose wife, Erica, ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ while giving birth to their little ones. Although a few years have passed since that ᴛʀᴀɢɪᴄ day, today he tells us that he is doing excellent at the difficult task of being a father.
In March 2015, Carlos was able to take his beautiful quadruplets home after spending two months in the hospital because they were born premature.
The unfortunate news was that Erica lost her life six hours after giving birth. She had ʟᴏsᴛ too much blood and was unable to recover.
After this ᴛʀᴀɢɪᴄ situation, Carlos had to take care of his four children and face one of life’s greatest challenges.
Carlos looks back and says that it has not been easy to go through this difficult stage. However, the love and support of the people give him the strength he needs. He has received numerous gifts and a sum of $10,000 for each child so that he could already start saving for them.
“I went from having the best day of my life to the next morning experiencing the worst day of my life. My four little children came into the world, and soon after, I ʟᴏsᴛ the love of my life, my wife. She asked me how this could be happening to me. She was fine, and then she wasn’t. She was alive and suddenly she was gone.” These are doubts that still haunt Carlos’ mind.
The sadness is erased when he thinks how lucky he is to be able to return home and know that his children will be waiting for him. “I wish Erica had been here so she could have seen them walk and crawl for the first time. There is much news from the children and she will not be present.”
The dad set these funds aside for Sallie Mae University and his friends, family and strangers have come together to offer their help as well. However, beyond money, the most important thing in his life, what gives this father the strength to get ahead, is seeing the face of his four little ones.
