I was touched by this tale of a babies touch.

Less than two weeks after giving birth, Emma De Silva was hit by a car as she took her newborn for a walk. Yoshi her husband, was told his wife would either die or live with brain injuries for the rest of her life. What doctors didn’t count on, however, was the extraordinary connection between mother and child and the healing power of the baby’s touch.

Melissa Doyle follows the inspiring, powerful and emotional story.

I found this Sonnet about a baby’s touch and immediately wanted to share it.
