Co-NNections Recovery Stories

Sadie 12-6-16


I became aware of CoDA through my therapist many years ago. My recovery has revealed the brave, beautiful inner child that is my true self. Words cannot express how meaningful this journey is for me. Here, I share how CoDA and 12 step recovery helps me to see ME.

———- This little child of mine;

Crying a deep ache that

Clenches her being and

Causes her to feel the suffocating

Force of






Who are you, little child?

Where are you, little child?

If I could dry the tears from

Your eyes and tell you that

Everything is going to be okay, would

You believe me?


If I could hold you in my arms and

Sing you a song,

Would you listen with your

Whole heart?


I only want to Love You, little child

I only want to See You, little child

Because what you forgot is,

You are Me and I am You.


I am the little child.


Sadie – 10/16
