About Us

Our Story

Our journey to parenthood was a long and difficult path, however in 2013 our miracle baby Riya came into our lives and changed it forever. Riya brought us the gift of real pure unconditional love – a love that knows no bounds. She filled our lives, and those fortunate enough to cross paths with her, with joy beyond measure. 


Riya was the most beautiful girl in the world, inside and out.  Her kindness was boundless, her humour infectious, and her intelligence truly remarkable. She possessed a love for music and belting out songs at the top of her voice from an early age.  Dancing was her joy, reading her solace, and engaging in arts and crafts brought her endless satisfaction.  With a fervent passion for Lego, she skillfully constructed imaginative scenes, frequently involving her younger sister, and orchestrated elaborate playacting scenarios, often assuming an amusing American accent. She loved watching quiz shows and would get so excited when she got questions right.  Even from a young age, a spiritual essence radiated from her, finding solace in meditation. She loved ‘Love’, she loved saying it, writing it and drawing love hearts.  Selflessness defined her nature, with an empathy rarely seen in one so young. A sage within a youthful frame, her maturity surpassed her years.


In 2016 our family welcomed a second miracle and Riya instantly became the caring and loving big sister, and she absolutely thrived with her new role.  She readily undertook responsibilities with bath times, nappy change and at mealtimes.  As a role model for her little sister she imparted wisdom to her younger sibling, nurturing her understanding of right and wrong, while sharing the wealth of knowledge she had accrued. She was very protective of her baby sister, rising to her defence whenever necessary.  But she was also fair and equally told her little sister off when called for too.  Riya’s curious mind absorbed information like a sponge and she delighted in recounting her newfound knowledge to anyone that would listen.


On Friday, 23rd December, Riya suddenly became seriously ill and was transferred to Great Ormond Street Hospital, where the staff exhibited extraordinary dedication to ensure her care was exceptional in every sense. ​

However, on Wednesday 28th December, our hearts shattered as our beloved Riya grew her angel wings and left us to continue her mission to help others. In a remarkable act of generosity, Riya's organs were donated, ultimately saving the lives of four individuals. The compassionate Organ Donation team at Great Ormond Street played an instrumental role in facilitating this profound gesture, meticulously guiding us through the entire process while honouring our every wish.​
