Following hot on the heels of the chocolate Virgin Mary
(which, as many people pointed out, looked more like the Maltese Falcon) comes: Jesus as seen on an ultrasound picture
Seven months through her pregnancy, Laura Turner went for a routine ultrasound. She already knew that her son had a cleft lip, and she and her partner had been told there was a possibility of the child having Down's Syndrome. She says that she didn't notice anything particularly odd about the scan until a friend pointed it out once they got home.
'The pregnancy has been fairly difficult so to see a likeness of Jesus in the picture gives me a lot of comfort.
'It's as if someone is watching over Joshua. It's helped make us feel more at ease and although I'm not very religious, seeing the picture does reassure me that things are going to turn out okay and that Joshua will be our little miracle.'
I suppose that, what with the difficult pregnancy, it's a very heartening sign for her.
