The touch of humanity…

The instinctive and ferociously strong grasp of a newborn infant’s hand as it reaches out to make contact with the person holding him close, sensing a familiar heartbeat and a known soothing voice, creates a powerful image. A grasp so powerful and deliberate yet coming from someone so unbelievably delicate and tiny is a reminder of the power of touch to bond us as family.

Touch… we can’t live without it. We fail to thrive without touch. It is as instinctive as breathing.  Even a tiny baby reaching out knows how important it is.  A baby’s instinctive grasp holds a message, “I belong here”.
