The Hand of Hope

This story is too beautiful not to share…

‘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.’

The story four years on.

The story ten years later.

Maybe I’m just sentimental and pregnant but I cried reading the articles.  (V – thanks for sending me the first link).

  1. I saw this one a few months back and cried all the way through. It’s hopeless…. I can’t stop tearing up when I read stories about babies, so you’re not the only one being sentimental about it all. 🙂


  2. Sigh… They say it’s just the hormones, but I still cry regardless of whether I’m pregnant or not and it all started after the first pregnancy!


  3. By the way, you leftist attack dogs calm down. King Bush put us on the path to socialism and General Secretary Obama is simply finishing the job. So please craft an answer in that context please, thank you in advance.
