(graphic/surgery) Unborn baby holds doctor's hand.
« on: January 24, 2011, 07:11:40 PM »
This is a picture from a friend of ours, who's 21 weeks (~5 months) pregnant (unborn). Their little boy has Spina Bifida, and the surgery was to help correct it early, before he was born. When the doctor was finished and was about to close up, the little boy reached out and grabbed his hand (picture).

I'm going to need this.

That photo is many years old. Are you sure it is a photo of your friend's child? It is an amazing photo nonetheless.

LOL, perhaps not. It was something I saw over my wife's shoulder, on her friend's facebook page... I guess I assumed that part of the story.

I'm going to need this.

  I remember seeing it many years ago - I believe via Dr. Dobson - and I haven't listened or paid attention to him in at least 10 years (maybe more).

But still, it's is beautiful.
