    This picture is from an article called "The Rescuing Hug". The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby's heart stabilized and temperature rose to normal.

      "Rescuing Hug" - the story of a set of premature twins: "each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two, threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby’s heart stabilized and temperature rose to normal."

    The Ryman Twins: Fighting the Odds. In a world that has a “convenience” mindset, the parents of these twins chose not to abort and fought the odds. The doctors did not think that both boys would live, much less live and be healthy. The Rymans didn’t take the “convenience” option and are blessed because of it.

    This is a beautiful story about a woman accepting the birth of a baby that wasn't who she expected her to be.

    When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in an Australian country town, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value. Later, when the nurses were going through his meagre...

    The hug that helped change medicine. Love is love.

    What happens to babies born alive after abortion? This is heart wrenching. "...the baby started moving his tiny arms and legs flailing. He started trying to gasp, but was unable to get air into his lungs. His whole body shuddered with his efforts to breathe. We were joined by a neonatalist and I pleaded with both doctors saying, 'The baby is viable — look at his size, look at his skin — he looks much older than 23 weeks.'"

    This photo is running the world. Twin brothers born in Spain joined hands shortly after birth, and nurses recorded the moment!

    The mother had cancer of the womb, and her uterus, including her unborn baby inside, had to be removed. This is a ten week old embryo, the photograph was taken by an OB/GYN med student in India named Dr. Suparna Sinha. I felt compelled to pin this purely to share how precious life is even at a mere 10 weeks into it's creation. Just..... wow.Powerful.

    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 ...

    "Love me. Love me. I'm not what you expected, but oh, please love me." Such a beautiful story.

    First time for this soldier to see his 3 week old daughter. He’s looking at her like she’s made of gold.

    So Sweet! " So today I was in Hallmark buying my mom a Happy Birthday card when I noticed this old man stnding in front of the Valentines card section contemplating which one to get. I decide to go over and I ask him “Are you getting a Valentine’s Day for your wife?” in which he replies 'No my wife died 3 years ago from breast cancer but I still buy her roses and a card and bring them to her grave to prove to her that she was the only one that will ever have my heart' "

    It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80′s arrived at the hospital to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am. The nurse took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would be able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of ...
