My daughters massive achievement beating the odds

My beautiful daughter, who has been attending OT sessions for last 6 months, has finally managed to ride her bike without stabilisers.  Tiana, who is extremely tall for her age (144cm) has balance, muscle weakness and coordination delays, as well as anxiety, fear of failure, intense fear of pain, and lack of confidence, has, after years of effort has finally managed to learn how to ride a bike without stabilisers.  Due to lockdown and seeing hundreds of families and children out riding their bikes, finally found the emotional strength and willingness to push through the pain and learn how to ride her bike without stabilisers. Due to the fact that she has been trying for years, her bike is now too small (by 10 inches!).   She would absolutely love a black or purple 14inch adult bike with 24vnch wheels, which I can't afford right now.  So if anyone has a penny or two to spare, it would absolutely make my brave, courageous and ambitious girls dream if we could poole together to buy her a grand new bike (she has inly ever had rusty 2nd hand ones to practise on!). If lockdown has done nothing for me and my girls, her learning to ride  bike has been a total win.  Love to anyone who is willing to help!! I have videos of her riding for the first time on her too small bike, but can't quite work out why I can't load them, will keep trying though Xxxx
