Samuel Alexander Armas ,21-week-old unborn baby

Hats off doctors..!!

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 University Medical
Center 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
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
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
