January 10, 2013 – "Hey, she's holding my hand!" said Dr. Allan Sawyer as he was delivering newborn Nevaeh by Caesarean section on October 9th, 2012 at Banner Thunderbird Medical Center near Glendale, Arizona.
This is the third child for Alicia and Randy Atkins and also their first daughter.
The picture that was taken by Randy Atkins is the first viral photo of 2013 with over 36,000 views on Facebook alone. Extraordinarily, Alicia Atkins (the mother), is a professional photographer who had her camera nearby in the delivery room.
Randy clicked five frames but only the third frame shows Nevaeh's tiny fingers curl around the gloved hand of Dr. Allan Sawyer. Dr. Sawyer said that the incident was really rare as he usually sees the baby's head first during a Caesarean section.
Nevaeh (heaven spelled backwards) is now 10 weeks old and just as clingy as ever.
