Why is this touching so important? “Dr. Brandt points out that as late as 1920, the death rate among infants in some founding hospitals in America approached 100 percent. Then Dr. Fritz Talbot of Boston brought over from Germany an unscientific sounding concept of “tender loving care.” While visiting in the Children’s Clinic in Dusseldorf, he noticed an old woman wandering through the hospital, always balancing a sickly baby on her hip. His guide said that the woman was old Anna. When the doctors had done everything they medically could for a baby but it still did not recover, they gave the child to old Anna and she cured it.” (Jim & Doris Morentz. eds. Minister’s Annual: Preaching In 1989. Thomas G. Wilbanks. “Hold My Hand”. Nashville: Abingdon press, 1988, p. 272). This story explains why touch is so very important.
