Peoria, Arizona baby girl shakes hands with the new world

 PEORIA, AZ —On October 9, Alicia Atkins was in the midst of giving birth by Caesarean section when Nevaeh—the name of the baby girl—reached out and grabbed the hand of the doctor. Proud father Randy had the presence of mind to photograph the miracle birth.

“I just wanted to make sure I got the picture because it was so cool,” Randy Atkins is quoted.

Alicia, owner of A Classic Pin-up in Glendale, gave a picture of the event to the doctor and posted the picture on Facebook receiving thousands of hits.

“I am in awe of this photo,” she writes on her Facebook page. “Something to remember forever.”
