The best way to make God laugh is to make plans…well, Annie and Darrell sure made God chuckle!

If you haven't already heard the news around Fort McMurray, the Simms family is on a 1 in 800,000 chance journey. Annie and Darrell Simms have been blessed with a set of quadruplet babies. Two boys and two girls to be exact with a due date for early January, but likely delivery end of November.

With the outpouring of individuals wanting to support, provide gifts, or help, it is difficult to identify exactly what is needed and when. The Simms have been taking this on a day by day basis with their primary focus no further beyond the health of the babies and Annie. Annie has been living in Calgary near the hospital since the end of August, 2018 as her pregnancy progresses.

So, as news is travelling fast across the Fort McMurray community, to share the Simms story and give their immediate community the opportunity to be a part of this extraordinary celebration of life, the GoFundMe will assist the Simms in effectively providing updates as well as use this account in a streamlined attempt for the following family needs:

• Baby products (i.e. car seats, diapers and formula, diapers and formula, diapers and formula...)

• In-home support

• Medical related rental coverage

• New vehicle that allows 5 car seats

• Home renovation to improve function of existing space to fit Quads

Please follow their journey, and share their story as we wait for our newest, and maybe only, set of quadruplet babies to arrive back in Fort McMurray. 

With lots of love,

The Simms family network

HOSPITAL TRANSFER FOR YMMQUADRUPLETS:

Our little ones have had their first adventure. After two weeks in the Foot Hills NICU the little ones have stabilized enough to be moved to another NICU in Calgary. This is great news as it means they are doing well enough to handle the move… we were excited and nervous to see them bundled up and put in the mobile unit for the transport. It was an odd feeling to see them wheeled away, and we didn’t feel at ease again until we saw them all set up in their new home at Rocky View hospital.

A big thank you to the teams at the Foot Hills and Rocky View hospitals who worked to ensure that our little ones where transferred at the same time and ended up all together at one hospital. It is a tremendous relief to Annie and I to be able to see them all together and we will forever be grateful for the people who made this happen!
