PHOENIX, AZ (CNN/KTVK) -- As any mother can tell you, giving birth can be a blur. But every so often a picture brings it into crystal-clear focus. Such an image is getting a lot of attention online.
It's hauntingly beautiful. Unborn Naveah Atkins reaches out of her mother's womb and holds the finger of the doctor performing her C-section delivery. Mom Alicia says, "He showed it to me and I was like, 'Oh my gosh this is amazing.'"
Few lives will be as well documented as little Naveah's. Her mother's a professional photographer. However, it was her dad, randy, who snapped the pic. Randy says, "The doctor called me over and said, 'Hey, she's grabbing my finger', so I ran over there and just grabbed the shot, and I was just in awe looking at it, it was such an amazing picture."
Alicia gave her doctor a canvas print of the photo. She says, "The doctor knew it was an amazing photo right away; he knew, the next day, that's all he could talk about for weeks."
And after thousands of 'likes' on Facebook, she's even gotten a few offers to buy the picture. Alicia says, "A couple of them have said they would love to have the photo for their organization where they're against abortion."
Obviously, Naveah is the newest member to join the growing family of five, although there's friendly disagreement on future growth.
But no matter how many other kids the may follow, this picture of Neveah they will cherish forever.
Alicia says she's going to hang a big canvas print of the picture in Neveah's room. And although she may someday sell prints, she'll never give up the copyright, which she says is priceless.
