Oh gosh, that is literally like asking me why I need oxygen.
I’ve been drawn to Emma and Henry’s relationship since the beginning. I first fell for Emma, and consequently, fell in love when Emma/Henry. I just think it’s an incredibly beautiful relationship. Emma went her whole live feeling unloved and unworthy with no family and no one to love her. Then this precious little miracle comes into her life. A person that she KNOWS would unconditionally love her forever, and would never leave her. She would never be alone again. But she is in jail. She wants her little miracle to have the best possible life. She wants him to have everything she didn’t have. So she does the most unselfish thing anyone could do, and gives him up. It’s so sad, because even Jen had said that if Emma wasn’t in jail, she would have kept Henry.
So ten years go by. I can only imagine how lonely those years were for Emma. And how often she thought of the little boy she gave up. And Henry, we know he thought about his birth mother. Then one day he shows up on her door and it’s history from there. They found each other. I just adore how much they love each other. How their relationship grew from season 1 to now. Their little adorable moments that make me squee. Emma needs Henry just as much as Henry needs her. The love they have for each other blows my mind, and I adore it.
I guess I can’t really explain why I love them as much as I do. But I have a thing for parent-child relationships. Because I think that they are the most beautiful kind of relationships to be had. And Momma!Emma is my favorite part of Emma. Now I’m just gushing about how precious they are, but I can’t really explain further than that. They are perfect and I love them.
