Wait!! What?! Quadruplets?! The ultrasound technician had to recheck before confirming that she was pregnant with quadruplets. Two sets of identical twins (2 boys and 2 girls) are unique. Only about 150 sets of quadruplets and higher-order multiples are born in the United States each year. Most often, they happen when a parent has been using assisted reproduction. In Ashley's case, her quadruplets are considered spontaneous. Naturally occurring.
Ashley and her boyfriend are thrilled and overwhelmed. They already have four children between them. The expenses, even now, are adding up. They need help. LOTS OF HELP! She lives on a part-time hairdresser's income, and he's a small engine mechanic. They will need lots of support as quadruplets require hospital trips, home care, lots of diapers, and other necessities. The average cost to raise one child is 17k per year. The average cost for quadruplets is above 68k. These expenses do not include specialized treatments for preemies, which they will be.
The babies are due in October; however, for the health and well-being of Ashley and her babies, they will most likely be delivered in mid-August. Ashley cannot return to work as these tiny miracles will need round-the-clock care for most of their first year. Your donations will help support these little miracles' needs.
Any donations will be gratefully accepted.
Thank you so much for all of your help and your kindness.
