amazing picture

 The hand in this picture is that of the then unborn child Samual Armas, who at a mere 21 weeks gestational age was operated on in his mothers womb  due to spina bifida. His hand flopped out just as Dr. Bruner, the doctor, was closing the incision. The doctor lifted the tiny hand gently and tucked it back in. The operation happened on Aug 19th, 1999. Samuel was born healthy on December 2, 1999. 

This picture is truly amazing I felt the need to share. What a magical moment! Takes my breath away.
