Christine was inspired to become a parent mentor through her own experience.
As one of Deaf Children Australia's newest Parent Mentor, Christine is eager to support families to navigate their own journey raising a deaf or hard of hearing child.
I believe having someone that's already walked this journey, walked beside you and guide you through the early days is really valuable.Christine Cronin
