The Fargo/West Fargo area is home to new quadruplets born March 8. The proud parents are Sally and Erich Richardson. The babies and mom are all healthy and growing! Check out the blog link below to view their progress!
Both parents are embedded in the local community serving as educators and positive role models for our youth. Sally is an 8th grade Earth Science teacher in the West Fargo School District. She serves on numerous committees at Liberty Middle School and for the West Fargo School District, giving of her time to positively impact the school culture. Swimming is the center of Erich’s positions as he is the head coach of the YMCA Fargo-Moorhead Gators Swim Team and head coach of West Fargo Sheyenne High School boys’ and girls’ swim and dive teams. This couple and their growing family plan to make the Fargo/West Fargo area their long term home.
The journey of preparing for the quadruplets is never short of decisions and hard work. The couple lives in a split foyer home with 2 bedrooms upstairs and 2 downstairs. A big step was to move everyone to the lower level bedrooms making the family room a space for the quadruplets. Another major decision was to find a vehicle that will fit 5 car seats. Yes, Sally and Erich have a 2-year-old daughter! They found a used minivan and will be outfitting it for the journey home from the hospital. Clothing and diapers are being gathered, sorted and stored to ease the next months. The generosity of friends and family is beyond words.
We are asking you to consider supporting this local family as they navigate the future with 4 babies and a toddler! Any assistance with the basics would be greatly appreciated. Diapers and formula needs alone will be overwhelming, along with all the other incidentals. Healthcare is at Sanford for prenatal, delivery and infant care. This Go Fund Me project is accepting donations to help with the expected medical and health expenses.
