Coffee on, toys out, literature open. How a child-friendly meeting grew up

When I had eight years sober, I was attending meetings regularly, at least four to six per week. I was active in general service and our local Intergroup and I was sponsoring others. I loved AA history and was in awe of what the program had done for me. My gratitude ran deep. Then my son was born. 

My baby was an AA miracle and a blessing. I thought he would accompany me to meetings and all would be well and we would continue to grow together in this amazing program. But it wasn’t that simple.
