"Fetal Hand Grasp"

The tiny hand gripping the surgeon’s finger belongs to a yet-unborn infant, Samuel Alexander Armas.

Samuel was diagnosed with spina bifida  and would not have survived if removed from his mother’s womb without first receiving remedial surgery.  Dr. Joseph Bruner had to remove the uterus via C-section and make a small incision to operate on Samuel.

Just as Dr. Bruner finished, he was stunned speechless to see Samuel’s tiny hand come through the incision and firmly grasped his finger.  Samuel was born in perfect health—–the operation was 100% successful.
