Donald and I started thinking about homeschooling both the girls after the diagnosis but we had so many concerns. Could we possibly provide our children with a proper education at home? What about the laws on homeschooling? Cost? What would family members say? Looking back now it all seems so silly.
While all of the drama with Chloe was unraveling,our daughter Autumn sat patiently. Autumn hated school even though she was a straight A student and had tons of friends. Autumn felt that if Chloe were going to have the choice to homeschool then she wanted that right too!
The most difficult challenge for our family when we started homeschooling was the bullying of the outside families.
We started home schooling the girls in August of 2006.
