    Source: Retrived/copied from Hand of Hope - Samuel Alexander Armas - Urban Legends and Samuel Armas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A picture began circulating in November. 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 U.S. 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 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 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 percent successful. Now see the actual picture, and it
    is awesome...incredible..
