    difficult child celebrates his one year clean anniversary tomorrow. I just talked to him on the phone and he is very excited about it. He is going to an early morning meeting tomorrow to get his one year key chain.

    I am so proud of him!!!!!!

    It's so funny because about a month or so ago he said something like, what are going to get me for my anniversary? How about a new car!

    I said to him, I don't think so, but I know where you can get a nice new keychain

    I'll make sure I call him first thing tomorrow morning also.

    That's terrific news! I had noticed that date in your signature and was wondering if you're supposed to do something (I don't know, dinner, movies, ???). My Dad takes my sister's best friend out to dinner every anniversary. Her parent's are both passed and he adopts everyone that comes into our lives!

    Congratulations!! My difficult child will be one year clean next weekend, then gets married the following Saturday, 10/13/07!! She has changed so much, is back in school, expecting her first baby, and just a different person.

    I am so happy for you and your difficult child. Let's pray that they continue down the right path and continue to grow as clean and sober individuals. CONGRATULATIONS!!

    Feels like we're his moms too! LOL! I am proud of him and proud of you. You held your head high during the lowest of times and I truly admire you. If I knew how to do an emoticon, I would!

    We need a thumbs-up icon for that! Way to go, difficult child. And good for you, Karen, for letting him reach his bottom as hard as that was ~ look at the results.

    I haven't been on the board long enough to know of yours and his struggles, but I know how huge of a milestone this is and it brought tears to my eyes.
