17. I just ordered a metric ton of info from

Nar anon, and one of the items is a booklet all about the fourth step. But, I really think the information across the myriad of different 12 step groups really isn't all that different. I really appreciate the input from any knowledgeable source.

I didn't realize until this post that you call the people you sponsor, your babies. Part of me wants to say, " hey, they are adults, not babies!", but a bigger part of me is so grateful that they have such a strong, but nurturing sponsor. I think I have a little sponsor envy. I don't know my F2F peeps enough to know who would be a good sponsor for me, much less whether they would want to!

I do know that I'm too new this time around, to be a sponsor yet, though I did buy the book on how to be an effective sponsor - for later. Service to others is a big part of this path, as you obviously know. Your spoonsees are very lucky to have you!
