You will not believe the photo, must read the story first…..
Please read before viewing picture – it’s worth it!
A picture began circulating in November.
It should be ‘The Picture of the Year,’ or perhaps, ‘Picture of
the Decade.’ It won’t be.. In fact,unless you obtained a copy of the US paper which published it, you probably Would never have seen it.
The picture is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being operated on by
surgeon named Joseph Bruner.
The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not
survive if removed from his mother’s womb.
Little Samuel’s mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta . She knew of Dr
Bruner’s remarkable Surgical procedure.
Practicing at Vanderbilt Univ Med Ctr in Nashville , he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb.
During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby.
As Dr Bruner completed the surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully
developed Hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon’s finger.
Dr Bruner was reported as saying that when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and that for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile.
The photograph captures this amazing event with perfect clarity The editors titled
the picture, ‘Hand of Hope.’
The text explaining the picture begins, ‘The tiny hand of
21-week-old fetus Samuel Alexander Armas emerges
from the mother’s uterus to grasp the finger of Dr Joseph Bruner as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life.’
Little Samuel’s mother said they ‘wept for days’ when they saw the picture.
She said, ‘The photo reminds us pregnancy isn’t about disability or an illness, it’s about a little person.’
Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100 percent successful.
Now see the actual picture,
and it is awesome, incredible and hey, pass it on. The world needs to see this one! This is not a “FETUS”, it’s a “BABY”
