WHY I WANT TO MENTOR
“I want to be a parent mentor to help support other parents who are going through the same thing I went through when my daughter was in the NICU. I wished I had someone to talk to when I was there day after day. I am hoping to connect with parents and provide comfort and a listening ear”
