Help Paraplegic Ride Bike with Daughter

I am an L1 Paraplegic after sustaining a fall and breaking my back on June 8, 2007. On October 15, 2009 my daughter, Hannah, was born. She is now four years old and learning to ride a bike. It is my dream to ride a bike with her. However, because I do not have enough leg movement and balance to ride a traditional bike, I must have a handcycle. Unfortunately, handcycles are extremely expensive. I do not want to give up on this dream simply because I cannot walk and do not have the money to afford a bike of this expenditure. Please help me fulfill my dream! I am tired of watching my daughter from the sidelines.
