Emma Sumi Abson 엠마 수미 앱슨


At 10:30 on the morning of the 6th of May 2014, a little girl took a breath of Swiss air. At that moment we held our daughter in our arms and watched the finger curls and feet wiggles of new life. She created a big brother of Edward, who had kissed her every day through his Mum's tummy and already loved her. At that moment her grandmother, Halmonee, was mid-air on her way from Korea, unable to hear the good news until she landed in Switzerland that evening. Her extended family stretched out to Korea and Australia, with grandparents, great-grandparents, aunties, uncles and cousins waiting close by to phones in anticipation of news of the youngest member of the family. The networks of social media were also soon to light up with messages of congratulations, love and good wishes for this little girl who had arrived in the world.

We named her Emma Sumi Abson (엠마 수미 앱슨). Emma is on both sides of my family and Sumi means 'stunning' and 'beautiful'. The 6th of May 2014 was also Buddha's birthday and a day celebrated across much of Asia.

We have enjoyed spending time with our little girl who is back home with us now, doing everything a one week old is expected to do. Edward is completely smitten by her, wanting to give her kisses all the time and taking a great interest whenever she cries. His teachers at creche also hear all about his little sister Emma too!

Thank you to everyone who has sent us their love and good wishes, we greatly appreciate it and know that these good feelings are helpful for us all, especially our little girl as she starts out in life.

With love,

Rod, Luna, Edward and Emma
