Tough Choices In Life

Dr. Laura:

Twenty-three years ago, I was 19 and pregnant.  I was a high-school dropout, and on a short road to a very sad life.  My parents decided they wanted to help me and encouraged me to make some tough choices.  In order to live with them and have them help me, I had to do three things:
  1. Go to college
  2. Go to AA
  3. Listen to you
Fast forward 23 years, and I'm now a college graduate, and AA helped me surround myself with people who helped me be a better parent and person.  And, of course, I've listened to you all this time.  

I'm happily married for almost 20 years and have 4 lovely children, ranging in age from college senior to a surprise baby, who is now 5 years old.  Your advice wasn't always easy to swallow, Dr. Laura, but it was spot on.  You really helped shape the person I am today, and I'm not too shabby!
