ABOUT THIS ALBUM
Singer-songwriter joe e. daddario uses beautiful soothing melodies and a contemporary pop sound as a form of therapy to express the feelings of pain and sadness that are the result of growing up in a troubled home. A lifetime's worth of unexpressed grief is finally uncapped. The result is a gushing forth of tears and expression related to the family problem that has gone unhealed for so long.
As you listen to the songs you will identify, and get in touch with, your own unexpressed grief. This is a vital step in the recovery process for Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACAs). joe's work comes from the heart and from his own healing. It is his prayer that these songs will find their way quickly and easily into the hearts of others who still suffer.
ACA's suffer from the pain of isolation, often thinking they are the only ones feeling this sorrow and confusion. joe's songs help to break that barrier of isolation by sharing with the listener the pain of abandonment. By identifying with the sadness and feelings of mourning, you will no longer suffer alone with your problem. Instead you will have taken the first step towards healing the child within. God will be with you and will bless you in your recovery process.
This album was first released on cassette in 1991 under the pen name of Joey D. It received wonderful reviews from noteable authors in the recovery field such as Claudia Black, Suzanne Somers, Pia Mellody and Terry Kellogg.
