Baby Samuel’s mother recounts the ‘joy of knowing this child’

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--Miracle baby Samuel Armas celebrated his first birthday on Dec. 2, 2000. Samuel was the subject of the "most amazing photograph of the 20th century." The image of Samuel's tiny hand reaching out of his mother's womb and grasping the finger of physician Joseph Bruner rocked the world in September 1999. The previous month, Bruner and a team at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., had operated on Samuel while he was still in his mother's womb to repair a spina bifida lesion on his spine.
