To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else~Dickinson
We call this one the praying baby. It's my favorite shot, besides the one between the legs. You can see all the fine little bones in the arm, just think, those are an inch long, and so teeny tiny. Radius, ulna, carpals, metacarpals...all the scientific language doesn't add up to the miracle that just 25 weeks ago, this lil being had only potential...a mass of cells with no shape or form. You can't tell in this still picture, but in the movie, the image is rotated so that you can see both little arms, hands together, before the face.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb
