Over the years, Morales has done an incredible job to raise four lovely children.An father of quadruplets whose wife ᴅɪᴇᴅthe same day his children were born says he’s ᴅᴏɪɴɢ ʜɪs ʙᴇsᴛ thanks to the help from supporters across the globe.This after the babies were born ᴘʀᴇᴍᴀᴛᴜʀᴇ and, in a ᴛʀᴀɢɪᴄ ᴛᴡɪsᴛ, his wife Erica, 36, ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ just one day after giving birth of ʜʏᴘᴏᴠᴏʟᴇᴍɪᴄ sʜᴏᴄᴋ which is caused by ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ ʟᴏss.’We’re just ᴅᴏɪɴɢ ᴏᴜʀ ʙᴇsᴛ. I’m feeling really, really grateful for everybody that just came together and helped us,’ referring to the nearly $350,000 raised on a set up for the family.’It’s funny how things turn out. Bittersweet, but at the same time, thanks to Gᴏᴅ, and the outpouring support of the public, it’s been phenomenal,’ she said: ‘And I’d like to say thank you to each and every one of you. All the support we’ve gotten from you, we appreciate it.’
Morales is sill ᴍᴏᴜʀɴɪɴɢ the ʟᴏss of Erica, however, with whom he dreamed of having a big family. The pair had ɢᴏɴᴇ through I.V.F ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ in a ᴅᴇsᴘᴇʀᴀᴛᴇ ᴀᴛᴛᴇᴍᴘᴛ to ᴅᴇsᴘᴇʀᴀᴛᴇ ᴀᴛᴛᴇᴍᴘᴛ to complete their family.But the last time Mr Morales saw his wife was when she kissed her on the head and said he loved her before going intoʟᴀʙᴏʀat Banner Good Samaritan Hospital. ‘Even when they sᴄʀᴇᴀᴍ their heads off I want to give them theʙɪɢɢᴇsᴛ kiss.’ He then added; ‘I already know their ǫᴜɪʀᴋʏ ʟɪᴛᴛʟᴇ ʜᴀʙɪᴛs or the next time they’re going to ᴄʀʏ. They’re starting to form their own personalities.’ And while he says ᴅᴇᴀʟɪɴɢ with four is a lot more difficult than ᴅᴇᴀʟɪɴɢ with two, he does have help thanks to his wife’s mother-in-law, who moved down to help with the children. The children arrived one month before her ᴅᴜᴇ date.
Just an hour later she ᴅɪᴇᴅ, and never got to hold them in her arms. Morales named her four children Carlos Jr., Tracey, Paisley và Erica. At birth, each baby weighs only 2-3 pounds, four kids were delivered safely but the mother went into ʜʏᴘᴏᴠᴏʟᴇᴍɪᴄ sʜᴏᴄᴋ, an ᴇᴍᴇʀɢᴇɴᴄʏ condition where one experiences a sᴇᴠᴇʀᴇ amount of ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ ʟᴏss. Since then Mr Morales has been caring for the youngsters and has described the ordeal he has been through.’We were so excited to start our family,’ he told, ‘And then it all came ᴄʀᴀsʜɪɴɢ ᴅᴏᴡɴ.’
In the ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴇᴀᴋɪɴɢ interview, he also described the moment the pair first met. ‘I didn’t speak any English and she didn’t speak any Spanish,’, laughing. ‘But I asked her to dance and she said yes.’ He then gave her his phone number, only to discover she had ᴛʜʀᴏᴡɴ the piece of paper out. However they met each other through friends again and sparked a relationship. After marrying in 2007, Mr Morales said they started trying for a baby right away.They went through a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ, but were ecstatic when they found out the had a baby (before they realized it was ᴍᴜᴛɪᴘʟᴇ) on the way. He told : ‘Her doctor told her she had to just relax. So that’s exactly what she did.’ In a bid to prevent her from any unᴅᴜᴇ sᴛʀᴇss, Mr Morales cooked, cleaned and made sure his wife stayed off her feet.
She had been healthy throughout the pregnancy, but was ᴀᴅᴍɪᴛᴛᴇᴅ into hospital on January 12 because her ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ ᴘʀᴇssᴜʀᴇwas high. Three days later, she texted her husband at his construction job and said doctors wanted to deliver right away. ‘The doctor said she was having too many ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴀᴄᴛɪᴏɴs so it was time to deliver the babies,’ he said: ‘We took pictures before she went into the delivery room, made some videos, and she was surrounded by family and friends. I said to her, ‘Let’s get these babies out’.’ They began discussing names, but Mrs Morales said the pair could decide after they were born. After the birth the babies were laid down in a nursery, Mr Morales went in and sǫᴜᴇᴇᴢᴇᴅ his wife hand as she woke up. A short time later alarms from the equipment surrounding her bed started going off. The next thing Mr Morales was told is that his wife was ᴅᴇᴀᴅ.
Describing what happened, he said: ‘How could this have happened? She was fine, and then she wasn’t. She was alive and then she was just ɢᴏɴᴇ. ‘I went from having the best day of my life to the next morning experiencing the ᴡᴏʀsᴛ day of my life.’ The nurse then brought the babies into the room and he held them on his lap. The nurse asked for their names and he gave her three they had agreed on and one he decided himself – Erica.
During his visits he is taking classes to make sure he gives his children the best care possible.He told ‘I’m learning everything from how to give them a bath, CPR, feeding, and how to manage their sleep schedule. I need to be prepared.’ Everything he does now is for his children. He’s grateful to his family and friends who have been very supportive.
