RICHMOND, Va. -- They say it takes a village to raise a child. So what will it take to raise four children who arrive on the same day? Richmond mother Roslyn Davis is carrying identical quadruplets. Her rare pregnancy has garnered a lot of attention and now a lot of support from the Richmond community. After seeing Roslyn’s story on television, some local mothers plan to start clipping coupons to get her enough diapers, wipes, lotions and bottles for the four babies.

In addition, Roslyn has started  a GoFundMe page for the quads.

"Many have reached out offering support during this exciting yet life changing experience as my family (children) grows from 2 to 6 within a matter of months," she wrote. "I am so grateful for the many well wishes and prayers I have received. I know that this is truly a blessing from God and I do not take it for granted."

Roslyn's identical quadruplets are extremely rare. CNN reported there are only 50 to 60 identical quads in the world.

Roslyn is already mom to a 10-year old and 13-month old. She said with the addition of quadruplets, many changes were in the works.

"I currently live in a 2-bedroom apartment with just enough space for my 2 sons and I," she said. "I will have to soon relocate to a larger space to provide for the quads."

Roslyn said she was due in November. She is currently undergoing tests at Johns Hopkins because of the rarity of her pregnancy.
