Rescuing Hug

I saw this at Marvelous Kiddo and my heart skipped a beat.
This picture is from an article called the “RESCUING HUG”

The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Apparently 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 twins made it home a few weeks later and are now preschoolers. A little miracle. 
Read more about the story, here. Read this to learn more about the proven benefits of skin-to-skin care for preterm infants.
