Baby Grabs Doctor’s Hand From Within the Womb

A picture began circulating in November last year. 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

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

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 per cent successful.

Don’t tell me our God isn’t an awesome God!!!!!!
