For it to be "your", it would have to be "Ihre" (with a capital I. Formal "you" is capitalised in all its forms: Sie, Ihr(e), Ihnen, etc.). Also, it would unnatural for a sentence like this to use the formal version of "you" as you would be addressing your parents ("we are your daughters") and you generally wouldn't address your parents with "Sie".

We are your daughters. Translation of "ihre" is "your", "their" etc.
