Adriella Jo Nelson
My parents are: Wesley and Samantha Nelson, Fargo.
My grandparents are: Joe and Rhonda Dehmlow, Wahpeton, N.D.; and Wayne and Shirley Nelson, Buxton, N.D.
My great-grandparents are: Richard and Dorothy Schwartz, and Hazel Dehmlow, Sanborn, Minn.; Ellsworth and Audrey Nelson, Cummings, N.D.; and Darrel and Dee Boyer, Wahpeton.
My parents chose my name because: My name is a variation of both of my great-grandparents’ names, Audrey and Ellsworth Nelson. My middle name is after my mom, Samantha Jo, and my grandpa, Joe Dehmlow.
Parents’ wish or advice for the new arrival: We hope that you will grow up knowing God’s love for you, and that your family will always be there for you. May you always keep that beautiful smile.
Something special: I was breech. I am also the first grandchild and great-grandchild on the Nelson side.
