Carroll’s experience

It was pretty traumatic, and if I ever needed my mother, I needed her then.

Carroll and her husband had thought coming over to Australia would be easy—when they arrived however, the reality of their experience came as a bit of a shock.

Before they were even settled, a child came along, and at a time when married women were still barred from work. When she separated from her husband, Carroll found herself raising their daughters alone.

Listen to Carroll’s story, and others like hers, in the Full Circle Podcast Series.
