My daughter Rachel turned 22 yesterday.
On the 22 day of February.
My first born, has always been a text-book baby.
She is smart, good natured and loves her family.
As most of you know, the summer of 2011 Rachel was struck from behind by a vehicle.
She had to take a year off school for the exhausting physical rehabilitation.
She still struggles with it to this day, but puts on a brave face. True grit this girl.

She is an University honours student studying Architecture, Fine Arts and History.
She has won various awards for her Architectural designs.
She will be receiving the Duke of Edinburgh gold award for community volunteering.
A mother can not be more proud.
Happy Birthday my precious child.
