Most women mark their 40th birthday with a luxury holiday, an indulgent trip to the spa or an expensive piece of jewellery.

But the only diamond Tanya Phillips had her eye on was the one at the end of a tattoo needle.

“I was stood at a check out till, when I saw an old couple whispering and staring at Honey-Rae’s leg. “I was distraught. It was first time I had taken her out without covering her up and it confirmed all my worries and fears. People are cruel without even realising.”

“Most people might think it’s very extreme but to us it was the natural thing to do to ensure our daughter never felt different or alone in the world.”

“When the swelling went down, I showed Honey-Rae, and she gently touched it and smiled as she said “Match”, pointing to her own leg. “If I’d have needed any reassurance that I’d made the right decision that was it.”

 

Now, if that doesn’t give you a warm feeling on a cold sunday morning I don’t know what will…
