5 October 2018

6 weeks ago we were thrilled and blessed to welcome Molly, Hudson, Indie and Quinn to our family.

Our Story

Kendall, Josh and their 3 year old son Brooklyn were surprised, shocked and delighted when they discovered in April that they were not only pregnant, but were expecting quadruplets.

On 15 August 2018 all four babies were delivered successfully at 28 weeks and 4 days. The babies ranged in weight from 2.47 to 2.88 pounds.

The babies are currently in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Christchurch Hospital and are all growing and developing like champions.

Molly is the leader and has been the first to hit every milestone. Hudson has just graduated to breathing on his own without oxygen and has joined Molly in her room. Indie and Quinn are identical twins and are doing well together in their double cot. Every day is full on, it is often one step forward and two steps back for each of the babies - a real emotional rollercoaster.

All going well, the family hopes be able to go home in the next 6-8 weeks.

Why Set Up This Page?

With 5 children under 3 years old, Josh and Kendall need all the support we can give them. There are all the costs of getting ready for the babies to come home and then there will be the ongoing costs of raising their gorgeous family.

A few weeks before they found out they were pregnant, Josh and Kendall put in an offer on a 3 bedroom house to upsize for their growing wee boy and hopefully a brother or sister to come.

With the news that they would clearly need more than 3 bedrooms in the very near future, they let that house go and in mid-October will become the proud owners of a 4 bedroom house in Timaru.

How Can You Help?

Any assistance you can give would be much appreciated. An account has been set up which all donations will be paid into and all money received will go towards the care of Molly, Hudson, Indie and Quinn - and of course Brooklyn.

Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness, Kendall and Josh and our entire family are so grateful for all the love and support they have received.

Use of funds

There are lots of things the family will need. Funds will be used for mortgage payments, funds for a vehicle big enough to fit 5 car seats and gear for 5 children. They will also need carseats, buggies, high chairs, cots, baby baths...etc. As the quads grow, there will be clothes, uniforms, bikes, sports. And of course there are 4 babies, a 3 year old, a Dad at work and one Mum with only 2 arms and 2 legs! The family will need support - people to help feed, bathe and care for the babies.
