This poem was written as a challange from the doctors point of view of a surgery he did that made history. While preforming a life saving technique  on a 21 week fetus inside it's mother's womb, the tiny baby reached out to clasp this doctor's finger...When I posted this the first time, I did not have the picture to post with it....but thanks to Ladycat....here the two are together. What a miracle              

This link will let you see the picture and the poem together....sorry I had to do it this way

What a great story, and your words tell it better than any newspaper article could.

Sorry guys...trying on this picture bit here....perhaps Ron has blocked pictures from all nonpassions sites...I don't know? Think it's important to see the picture with this poem or would have never reposted it.

Ruth I read the poem before and it was awesome, bringing tears to my eyes. Just chokes me up!  With the picture it says a thousand words.  Again, I am choked up by a miracle like this! Our God is an awesome God!

OH Ruth...
the sight of it coupled
with the words of your post~
leaves me with tears from "wittnessing"
such an incredible miracle.
Pure tears of love and joy.
This was a fabulous job!

Is there a greater miracle than the miracle of birth?  
Very nice poem!  I didn't get a picture either.

Even though I`ve watched the birth of my own children this one made my heart skip a beat.
I agree,both the picture and your poem have brought this one to life.
Beautiful.
