The law is changing to give unmarried fathers automatic rights to their children, but for some men it's too late. In the last episode of the series, John (not real name) tells us how he hasn't seen his children since 2011.
John & Marie McPhelimy have a young daughter, born after Marie's sister acted as surrogate for the couple. However, because there is no law surrounding surrogacy in Ireland, they're all trapped in legal limbo. This is their story.
