From the Grass Roots


I have often thought of writing to you to explain, if I can, my feelings for AA.

I don't really know where to begin. I have a very large family. I had nine children but now my oldest daughter is married and has a son of her own. The other eight are still at home with me and all very happy due to AA. I have tried to get on the program about five years and I think I have finally made it. I can't possibly tell you just what is in my heart, and what it has done for me.
