Four additional infants were welcomed this summer by a Texas couple who were expecting their fourth and last child. Even though they only meant to have one more child, the Haglers feel that having Qᴜᴀᴅʀᴜᴘʟᴇᴛꜱ has made their life better.
Patrick Hagler, 50, and Gaby Hagler, 39, discovered they were having multiple children at their 12-week ultrasound. Despite their “total amazement,” the couple expressed excitement to meet their rainbow children because they had previously suffered a miscarriage.
Paxton, 12, and Kalleigh, 13, are the couple’s children, and they were married in 2018. Sammy, who is now almost 3 years old, was the couple’s first child together when she was born shortly after. Gaby and Patrick decided to try for a second child, however a miscarriage took place. They decided to try again despite their defeat. Patrick said, “We agreed we’ll do one more.” We’ll be done after the fourth one, which is the last. We were completely sʜᴏᴄᴋed to find Gaby was expecting Qᴜᴀᴅʀᴜᴘʟᴇᴛꜱ at her 12-week ultrasound.
Adam, Bennett, Coby, and Dane, the couple’s four children, were born on June 22 at 34 weeks. The brothers all joined the intermediate-level NICU after the Qᴜᴀᴅʀᴜᴘʟᴇᴛꜱ spent a few days in two separate NICUs due to their prematurity, and they began receiving speedy releases to go home.
Their lives have improved since the Qᴜᴀᴅʀᴜᴘʟᴇᴛꜱ arrived. The fact that we had financially budgeted for another child and that even required some planning and consideration of how we were going to handle things, according to Patrick, has undoubtedly changed our lives and been a little ғʀɪɢʜᴛᴇɴing. The entire financial strategy was entirely ᴅᴇsᴛʀᴏʏed, yet it is still controllable. At first, it’s just a little intimidating.
He stated, “I think the Bᴀʙɪᴇꜱ have been a fantastic anchor for our family because we are a blended family. Paxto is my child from a previous union. Kalleigh is Gaby’s ex-child partner’s from a prior relationship. Sammy belongs to all of us, therefore the Bᴀʙɪᴇꜱ have truly brought the family ᴄʟᴏsᴇr together. And the older kids’ capacity to contribute in the way they have has dramatically enhanced the family’s dynamic.
