Caroline and Niall O’Flaherty met through work in 1995. After dating for only three months they went out for a drive, spotted their ideal house, and spontaneously bought it! So began their lives together. They married in 2002 and dreamed of starting a family. Caroline’s sister-in-law is Indian and she has always had an affinity with that country, feeling drawn to Indian culture. It is somewhat fitting that that is where Baby Ava’s life began and Caroline and Niall plan on taking her back to India when she is older. The O'Flahertys decided to tell their story because it is Ava’s legacy but also as a way of helping other parents who find themselves fighting similar legal battles. Niall is also enrolled in an LLB degree beginning in September. Niall, Caroline and Baby Ava currently live in Dublin.
