Hi CoDA Family,

I've been in CoDA since 4/28/21. I'm getting in touch with my inner child. I thank the program so much for introducing me to him. He has been confined and sad for a long time. I knew I was in turmoil but didn't know an inner child existed, much less how to parent one. I've been in AA 35 years and Al-Anon 10; they prepared me for CoDA. My inner child and I were traumatized early in life, and it took years of therapy and 12 Step work before we could face each other. To make matters worse, my father inappropriately touched me as a youth, and my inner child fears I'll do the same to him. It's definitely going to take HP's help to heal this relationship. With CoDA teaching me a plethora of nurturing/healing techniques, I'm sure I will adequately parent my child. If I had given up, CoDA/child would never have been revealed to me. It's true, don't give up before the Miracle happens. Thank you CoDA!
