    Reported by:

    After undergoing a myomectomy to remove 11 fibroid tumors, Kim hoped to conceive a son. She was successful. She wanted another son, and so underwent the procedure a second time, as fibroids grow continuously. But getting pregnant a second time proved to be a challenge, so she began to consider using a surrogate. Her cousin offered to be that surrogate for her. In this precious moment, Kim is catching her second son, born not of her, but to her all the same.

    What an moment you captured! I love this story and the joy on this mother's face. I enjoy the black and white take on it as it gives the photograph a timeless quality. Wonderful submission.
