The grieving father was able to take two of his children home from the hospital on January 16, 2015. The other two were able to go home on March 11.

Despite the incredible sense of loss and the pain he felt at his love’s passing, Carlos knew he had to be there for his children. The father-of-four took baby-care sessions, learning how to bathe his young ones, feed them when they were hungry, manage their sleep schedules. He also learned CPR.

Eventually, Erica’s mom, Sondra Bridges, moved in with Carlos to help him care for her grandchildren.
