Please do take a moment to read this, you could make a difference.
I am writing to ask for your help to keep a Bristol Family Together. You may not be aware of this story so I will fill you in. Last year Emma and Martin Robbins decided to extend their family and give Their 2 year old son Luke a brother or sister. So nature took its course:..and by totally natural conception they got pregnant:..with Quadruplets!!
The babies, 4 boys, Samuel, Reuben, Joshua and Zachary were born by Cesarian section at 29 weeks on 29th February this year.
Even though they knew it would be tough, 3 months on both parents are surviving on around 2 hours sleep a night, sometimes less, and as you can imagine they are now reaching breaking point.
Social Services are giving them NO HELP with childcare. Essentially what they need in the first instance is a night carer so they can get some vital hours sleep. Some days Emma is at home with 4 babies to care for and not forgetting Luke, who is now nearly 3 years old as Martin still has to go to work to provide for the family. They are just an average family on an average income so it is so important to act now .
10 years ago Social services provided a local quad family with a night nurse for 5 nights a week and a full time nanny at the age of 3::even with this help the mother of the quads was almost at breaking point. NONE of this help is now available. Emma and Martin are very strong people and amazing parents but are severely sleep deprived. I do what i can to help but it is a drop in the Ocean compared to their needs. Please help if you can with whatever you may be able to afford. I really don't want to see this family fall apart. It has been such a tough journey already. We are also looking at other ways of fundraising for the future and will continue to fight for this cause. Many thanks. Donna :)
