The picture is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, Surgeon, Dr Joseph Bruner performed 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 hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon's finger.
It was the most emotional moment of the surgeon’s life. The editors titled the picture, 'Hand of Hope.' Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100 percent successful.
