She’s only 18-years-old but Reanne Racktoo has a haul of gold, silver and bronze medals from international climbing competitions.

Her achievement is even more remarkable given she is registered blind and has cerebral palsy.

Her mother Amanda, 46, from Bury, Greater Manchester, brims with pride over her daughter’s achievements – and also feels a sense of vindication, for when Reanne was born, she was advised to turn off her baby’s life support machine because her child would have ‘no quality of life’.

Giving Away the Bride

Since I do not have any daughters (yet) I do not have this responsibility to contend with.  And yet I’m told that it’s one of the hardest things a father has to do.

If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins. – Exodus 22:17

Now, I’m not talking about the fact that I may have to owe a dowry, since we are not working under a biblical betrothal arrangement.  What I am sensing here is a responsibility that father’s have to verify that the man is the one God has for our child.  Although it is important to make sure our sons have the right girl, it is of particular importance in the case of our daughters because we are transferring our leadership of a woman to another man– a man that she should be submissive to, that she should trust for leadership.
