Humans of Downey - Emery


"Thirty-two years ago I was the Youth Director of the Hungarian Baptist Church of Alhambra. Two young ladies were coming from Maryland to visit their aunt and I had the privilege to pick them up at the airport. When I saw them I had my eye on the younger , but I married the older. We met in April, became friends, and married in November. We have been married for 31 years.

"When our daughter, Christina, was born, I was the first to hold her but only for a few minutes. The feeling of joy that filled my heart as I looked into this little bundle of joy we had created was overwhelming. Then I gave her to her mother, who got to hold her for a few minutes, then the nurses took her away and I only got to see through the glass for the next few days."
~ Emery
