London, Dec 9: Amy Winehouse’ s mother is very worried about the way the troubled star’s life is shaping up and so out of her immense love, care for her child, she has written a moving open letter, pleading with the singer to come home and get well again.
Janis, Winehouse’s mum is really scared for her daughter, who constantly battles with drugs and booze, and whose husband is in jail for fixing a trial, and wants the 25-year-old to get her life back on track.
I hope you understand why I'm writing this. We have spoken recently but many people will wonder why I haven't run down to whatever hotel you're staying in, scooped you up and taken you home for a hot bath and a steaming bowl of chicken soup, ” News of the World quoted Janis, as writing in the letter.
“It's because your father and I know what you're like, Amy. We want to help you, but we know that unless you want to be helped— unless you come to us—anything we tried would be in vain.
“So this letter is my way of making sure that you know that—that all you have to do is come to us, Amy, and we'll do everything in our power to get you well again.
“After all, you are still my baby and you always will be.
“I pile hope upon hope that you will make that decision, Amy, and your strong will can bend for just a moment to make that decision and come home to me.
“I know there's no point in me ringing you, fussing over you or ordering you to do something. I need you to take that first step, darling. I need you to call me, to pick up that phone and tell me what's troubling you, ” she added.
In the letter, Winehouse’s mother wrote that she would provide all her support to her daughter in order to make her stronger and happier.
“I want you back, and I'll make you fitter and stronger. I'd like nothing better than to have you home and help you put on a bit of weight with some wholesome home cooking, ” she wrote.
“Me and your father, and your brother Alex all want you to be happy and quickly restored to full health. For the moment, that's all of our priorities, ” she added.
Janis said that things would turn Winhouse’s way but first the ‘Rehab’ singer would have to return home.
“You know I'm an optimist, and that I think, with our help, you will get back on top of things.
“But I know you must come to me first for that to happen.
“I just hope that, because of this letter, you do. Pick up the phone.
“All my love, Ma, ” she wrote. (ANI)
