    I was going through this exact ordeal when I found this book. What a blessing! I found the words and strength I needed in it, and I don't know if our outcome would have been as positive had I not read it. My daughter is now in Rehab and doing very well. I am buying copies to give her Rehab facility, to share with the patients and families.

    That story hit so close to home for me. The only difference was that I was the meth addict and I came so close to dying. I hurt my kids, myself and anyone else who loved me. I'm glad the 12 step groups were able to help. I wasn't so lucky. I came across some people in recovery I thought were my friends, but turned out to only be my friends as long as I stayed clean. After 3 years sobriety, I relapsed and when I tried to come back begging for help, they all turned their backs on me. Only the men in the meeting gave me their numbers and I needed that like I needed a hole in my head. Instead I got clean by myself with no help from anyone. I am now 10 years clean by the grace of God. I cheered for Annie all the way through.

    Book Review - A Very Fine House

    Being in the midst of a home of three teens and having hit some difficult years I chose a memoir for my next book review.

    A Very Fine House, written by Barbara Cofer Stoefen, is a heart wrenching story of a mother and daughter's relationship through the addiction battle. She writes very candidly yet compassionately. The battle is truly felt as you read through the pages of a hurting mother. She profoundly moves through fear and anger to compassion and love. It is a beautiful testimony to how strong the family bonds are no matter what comes your way. A mother simply cannot stop loving and fighting for her children.

    Having gone through a very rocky road with one of my own, I felt her pain, yet was a little discouraged by the few times the Lord was brought up. I know from experience, I would not have made it without Christ and Him being my rock. "Faith" is a very subjective word. I would love to have a sit down with Mr. Stoefen and unwrap that a tad bit more.

    In light of that, I was encouraged to persevere in my own mother/child relationships. And I want to remember this profound quote: "Those who might judge the disasters of others may not yet have had their own." Very true. Very true indeed.
