Boy was in a fight for his life from the very beginning
It's hard to imagine anything could be considered worse than the horrors of war. But for Erik Parkard watching his newborn son, Ronan, fight for his life trumped what he experienced during two tours in Iraq.
Erik and his wife, Nicole, are the proud parents of 5-year-old Nadira and twin 7-month old boys Ronan and Wolfgang.
The twins were born Nov. 15, 2010 via emergency c-section because doctors determined that Wolfgang was in distress.
