Retention of Danish Citizenship with Under 22 Rule


My name is Samantha (21) I was born in Australia to a Danish mother and an Australian father.
They were not married so technically I was Danish when born. However, by mistake my mother applied for Australian Citizenship not knowing she would lose her Danish citizenship (crazy I know) therefore I would have lost it at the same time. Since the allowance of dual citizenship she has applied and is waiting to hear (shouldn't be a problem).

I just wanted to know if anyone has had any experience with retention of Danish citizenship? If your parents had lapsed? If it is difficult? I can document many times that I have visited (10+) and all my family and friends there, but my Danish is not great, will this disqualify me?

Thank you for any insight you can provide or any suggestions of where to look.
