Husband kisses wife’s head before birth and murmurs five words – one hour later, he’s a single father to quadruplets.

It’s tough to put into words how we feel when we find out we’re going to be parents for the first time. It doesn’t matter if we’re expecting moms or fathers; the great majority of us are just thrilled to discover we’re having a kid.

Naturally, our first thoughts are of hope. Perhaps we envision how our child will seem, or we fantasize what we will teach or experience with them. Many of us are curious about how it will feel to hold them for the first time.

Unfortunately, not all pregnancies result in the bliss that most of us expect as children. Carlos Morales, from Phoenix, Arizona, is all too familiar with this awful fact, and his story is a wonderful example of life’s bittersweet aspect…

Carlos and Erica Morales appeared to be a couple made in paradise. The pair started dating in 2006 after meeting at a nightclub in Scottsdale, Arizona, and despite a language barrier – Carlos didn’t speak English and Erica didn’t speak Spanish – they were unmistakably attracted to one other.

According to rumors, Carlos and Erica spent the most of the first night dancing. When the nightclub closed, Carlos jotted down his phone number on a scrap of paper and gave it to Erica to do with as she pleased.

Erica eventually misplaced the paper containing Carlos’s phone number, and that could have been the end of it. Fate, it seemed, had other intentions.

The pair reconnected, this time through common acquaintances, and it wasn’t long before they recognized their love for one another were genuine.

Carlos studied English as a sign of dedication in order to speak well with Erica. Meanwhile, Erica was studying Spanish.

“Take a look at these blessings. I want to give them the greatest kiss even when they scream their brains off.”That’s what I mean…

The couple married in a Las Vegas ceremony in 2007, and then began attempting to start a family.

Their first effort ended in tragedy when they miscarried. Erica became pregnant again thanks to fertility therapy, and this time the pair was in for a huge surprise.

When Erica went for her first ultrasound, physicians informed her that she was carrying not one, but four babies!

Carlos and Erica prepared to become parents to quadruplets over the course of many months. Carrying four children rapidly took its toll on Erica, so Carlos tried his best to look after her while still doing housework like cooking and cleaning.

On March 1, 2015, ABC15 Arizona published an article.
Erica was brought to the hospital on January 12, 2015, due to excessive blood pressure. Before Carlos arrived, she contacted him to explain that physicians wanted to deliver the infants soon away due to her continuous contractions.

When Carlos arrived, he and Erica shot photographs and films to remember the occasion. Before Erica entered the delivery room, Carlos kissed her on the cheek and whispered, “Let’s get these babies out.”

He had no idea that day would change his life in more ways than one.

Carlos and Erica’s quadruplets – three girls and one boy – were born via C-section, according to Carlos.

“We were so excited to start our family,” Carlo told Yahoo. “And then it all came crashing down.”

Erica went into hypovolemic shock immediately after giving delivery, a disease marked by substantial blood and fluid loss.

Carlos was sitting at his wife’s bedside when the alarm went off and nurses rushed in. While medical personnel attended to his wife, the new father was ordered to wait outside. When a doctor returned an hour later, Carlos was informed that Erica had died.

“How could this have happened?” he wondered. She was alright for a while, then she wasn’t. She was living, then she was gone. I went from having the finest day of my life to having the worst day of my life the next morning. My four children were born, and then my wife died.”

Carlos named his children Carlos Jr., Paisley, and Tracey after a discussion he had with his late wife. “Erica” was the name he gave to his third child.

On January 16, 2015, the bereaved father was permitted to bring two of his children home from the hospital. On March 11, the other two were allowed to return home.

Carlos realized he had to be there for his children despite his enormous sense of loss and sadness at his love’s death. The father-of-four attended baby-care classes, where he learned how to clean his children, feed them when they were hungry, and regulate their sleep routines. He also learnt how to perform CPR.

Sondra Bridges, Erica’s mother, eventually moved in with Carlos to assist him care for her grandkids.

“It’s funny how things turn out,” Sondra commented. “It’s bittersweet, but it’s been phenomenal thanks to God and the outpouring support of the public.” And I’d want to express my gratitude to each and every one of you. We sincerely appreciate all of your help.”
