When little Emmerson was welcomed into the world seven months ago, Jayne and Jon Cornwill finally felt like their family was complete.
It has particularly been Mrs Cornwill’s life-long dream to raise a baby girl.
So much so, the mother of three boys went to great lengths to ensure her fourth child would fill the missing void she’s felt all these years.
As non-medical gender selection remains illegal in Australia, Jayne and her husband flew to the US to undergo a procedure which would allow them to determine the gender of their embryos.
The overall trip cost the couple from Mount Barker, east of Adelaide in South Australia, almost $50,000, and they believe it was worth every single cent.
