Isaac Michael Herlickson

I was born: Dec. 18, 2009, at Sanford Medical Center, Sioux Falls, S.D.

My parents are: Corey and Stacey Herlickson, Moorhead.

My grandparents are: Michael and Sherry Christl, West Fargo; and Roger and Sue Herlickson, Grand Forks, N.D.

My great-grandparents are: Eugene and Bonnie Christl, West Fargo; and Leona Devine, Grand Forks.

Something special about his birth: Isaac was born with gastroshcisis, a birth defect of the abdomen in which the bowels are on the outside of the body. Surgery was required immediately after his birth to put the bowels back inside his stomach cavity. He will have no noticeable scars, but a lot of pictures to remember his birth.
