The goodie bags included candies, earplugs….and a note which explaining the intention behind this thoughtful gesture from her baby’s perspective. The note said:
“Hello, I’m Junwoo and I’m 4 months old. Today, I am going to the U.S. with my mom and grandmom to see my aunt. I’m a little bit nervous and scared because it’s my first flight in my life. That means that I may cry or make too much noise. I will try to go quietly, though I can’t make any promises. Please excuse me.”
“So my mom prepared little goodie bags for you! It has some candies and earplugs. Please use it when it’s too noisy because of me. Enjoy your trip. Thank you.”
