Insiya Hemani, kidnapped from her grandmother's Amsterdam home by her father in September 2016, turns four years old today. To celebrate her mother Nadia Rashid made a birthday video with magazine Vrouw and posted an emotional message on Facebook. 

"Happy birthday to Angel Insiya, who is a big girl now!" Nadia wrote on the Facebook page dedicated to bringing her daughter back from India, where she is with her father Shehzad Hemani.

"Today as all other days, I recollect all the special things you do and all the special things you say. From your love for Snapchat filters, to your irreplaceable warm hugs and mushy kisses.  You confiscating everybody’s iPad with your big smile and convincing power. You keeping everybody happy by telling them how much you love them. Your infinite love for ice cream and picnics in the park. You happily playing with other kids, calling them babies, already so grown up yourself."

"You live in the hearts of many. And on this special day many people, along with me, are sending you love and countless blessings. Mommy cannot wait to hold you, hug you, kiss you and tell you how much I love you."
