It’s been 21 years today since I first held my daughter in my arms for the very first time. The memory is as clear today as if it was yesterday. So much has happened in 21 years and it’s frightening how quickly the time has gone by. When you were born you weighed just over 5lbs and within 24 hours you gave us all a fright by turning blue and having a shallow breath.
