Erica Morales Fund - Quadruplets

$483,058 of $500k goal

Raised by 13,261 people in 22 months
Nicole Todman  AVONDALE, AZ
We are raising money to provide for 4 beautiful babies left behind after their mother passed away just hours after their birth any amount is appreciated. My best friend and her husband Carlos have tried for the last few years to have a baby and with their Dr.'s help they were  blessed with not 1 but 4 beautiful children, but with that blessing came the most unimaginable tragedy my best friend was lost.  The expense of raising 4 children alone is quite daunting for any middle class family now the  with the loss of Erica's income her husband will need all the help he can get. This is an extremely emotional time, Erica's passing is traumatic and  my goal is to help ease the financial  worry as much as possible so every dollar helps if it's $1 or $1000 it will all be used to provide for the beautiful babies Erica fought so hard to have and in the end gave her life for.

Please look under updates for additional info.

Hello all I see a few request for updates and Pictures on the quads and as the post get older I failed to realize that the information listed early on in this campaign maybe harder to find, i.e. where to see updates on the babies. I created a facebook webpage in dedication to my friend Erica where you can see her beautiful babies once again I want to Thank everyone for their continued support and condolences. Here is a link to the facebook page

I want to apologize for my lack of participation with the updates and responses to any messages. I had to take some time to grieve and find a balance with regular everyday things while managing donations, events etc. I appreciate everyone's understanding and patience during that time. I would like to say thank you to thousands of donors for there support. I initially set out to send a personal thank you to everyone but there just aren't enough hours in the day so for now here's a big group Thank You.!! I can't express the amount of gratitude I have for everyone.
I have turned the comments section back on and will do my best to keep the Updates coming.

Babies: They are all doing well getting stronger each day and may even be coming soon they're all right around 4 lbs . They've been taken out of their incubators which means they're able to maintain their temperature all by themselves and they're feeding from bottles instead of tubes.

Carlos is doing fine he's enjoying the babies

I can't find the words to say to make your day a bit better.....as there really aren't any. This is so heartbreaking yet heartwarming all at the same time. You are a very strong man and your wife is watching over you and guiding you, never stop believing that. I am on disability so funds are very tight at the moment, but, I felt very compelled to help somehow...so, I put your story on my blog ( http://www.lettingherrip.com/fyi/father-of-quadruplets-who-lost-wife-at-birth-celebrates-1st-fathers-day ) and am posting it everywhere I can. So hopefully, it will generate more donations and so much more than I could ever give. It is hard enough to raise just one child let alone 4 and doing it without the help of the mamma as she was taken way to early....but, remember, God has a plan....Prayers for you and your lil ones today and always. Much Love.
