The likelihood of such an event has been reduced to 1 in 13 million – lightning strikes people more frequently. “I was just confused,” Dr. James Bofil said of what had happened. It was mentioned to me by a coworker.
“I thought she was making fun of me!” Because the girls were born prematurely, they had to spend some time in the hospital.

Meanwhile, Kimberly relished her mothering role: “I wake up every morning, I see their smiles, I hear their first gurgles – I am simply overwhelmed with joy!”
These babies have become the biggest surprise in my life, and I can’t imagine not having them!” Kimberly now considers her quadruplets to be a miraculous twist of fate, without which her life would not have been so bright.
