Behind the Story: Christoffers quintuplets
Once in awhile you come across a story that is 18 years in the making. That's the case with Forum Communications' coverage of Moorhead's Christoffers quintuplets. Mike and Collette Christoffers were already parents to 3-year-old Emily when they were told to expect quintuplets in the spring of 2002. They first talked to then WDAY reporter Tracy Briggs in 2001 when the five babies were born in November, three and a half months early. The family recently spoke to Tracy again upon the kids' graduation from high school.
