Christopher, from the Helen Keller Society, was overjoyed last week to meet her great grandchild, Ryan Whitaker, for the first time. Ms Christopher’s family relocated to Australia several years ago but flew in for her to meet seven-month-old Ryan. She last saw her son, Kevin Christopher, and his family, four years ago when she flew to Australia for her grandchild, Cindy Whitaker’s (Ryan’s mother) wedding. Ms Christopher, 83, said she was not up for travelling anymore and had been thrilled to hear her family were coming to visit. “It had been absolutely amazing to have them all here and to meet Ryan for the first time,” she said.
