Before I Let You Go: A Novel by Kelly Rimmer

The 2:00 a.m. call is the first time Lexie Vidler has heard her sister’s voice in years. Annie is a drug addict, a thief, a liar—and in trouble, again. Lexie has always bailed Annie out, given her money, a place to sleep, sent her to every kind of rehab. But this time, she’s not just strung out—she’s pregnant and in premature labor. If she goes to the hospital, she’ll lose custody of her baby—maybe even go to prison. But the alternative is unthinkable.

As weeks unfold, Lexie finds herself caring for her fragile newborn niece while her carefully ordered life is collapsing around her. She’s in danger of losing her job, and her fiance only has so much patience for Annie’s drama. In court-ordered rehab, Annie attempts to halt her downward spiral by confronting long-buried secrets from the sisters’ childhood, ghosts that Lexie doesn’t want to face. But will the journey heal Annie, or lead her down a darker path?

Both candid and compassionate, Before I Let You Go explores a hotly divisive topic and asks how far the ties of family love can be stretched before they finally break.

Sister Addiction Poems

You dread seeing them and you need to see them, all at once. I feel regularly as though I have nothing left to give him. With all of our combined wisdom, strength, love and unfailing will to make things better for him, there is nothing we can do. He will have an army of people behind him and beside him when he makes the decision, but until then, I and others who love him are powerless. I know that. Addiction is not a disease of character, personality, spirit or circumstance.

Prev Poem. She chased the dragon into the night Now we fear she will never see the light She has so much to live for But nothing can fill her emptiness more She thinks everything can be fixed with a pill Yet the cold still gives her a chill And the hole she has dug Will never be filled back up with a drug She finds comfort in those who know her pain But they aren't the ones to blame Mommy tries so hard to believe the lies Still seeing her baby girl in those blood shot eyes Her sister gave up hope years ago Could not cope with anymore hurt and sorrow If only the love of your family could be enough Don't know how much longer we can stay tough We wonder where it all started And how much more we can bare What happened to my little sister with blonde hair Always at the top of her class Did she get cut when tasted the glass Will she ever mend her wings again Or is every breath she takes bringing her closer to the end.

I believe that growing up with a sibling who was an addict provides me a unique perspective to share with Families Connected.
