Beautiful. I would have cropped a bit off the top, to bring the baby's hand centered up in the frame.
Lovely detail and processing.

To me, this is what photography is all about. You've taken something simple and universal, and managed to capture the emotion. Well done.

Wow!!! I can feel the softness of the little one's hands. Your soft focus attempt is really successful with the theme. Great composition. I like the color. Overall a very pleasant shot worth seeing multiple times. Bravo!!

Of the many photos of this type I've seen, this is certainly one of the best. It has lovely soft directional lighting, tack sharp focus, texture, in the baby and adult skin patterns and fingerprints, a "geometric" repeating pattern, with a focal point, and a lovely duotone that complements the whole mood.
