Senator Averil Power was born in 1978, and her parents told her when she was 8 or 9 that she was adopted.. and then it was never mentioned again. She grew up in a small council house in Shankill, with her mum Jennifer and Dad Paul. She remembers initially being shocked.. but then it kind of made sense.
