Sunday Visit: the least complicated

My friend, Jennifer, has been writing a great series of post on school, and in particular, school and her adopted children.  Stop by and spend a few moments, it will be well worth your time.

the least complicated

I also happen to know that she has a great post set to go for Monday.

Happy Sunday!

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    Thanks for the site link. It always encourages me to read about your family and others who have chosen traditional school for their adoptive children even if their hearts have always been set on homeschooling their children. We have 5 children still at home – 2 bio which are home-schooled, 1 adoptive in public school and 2 adopted who are too young for school. I have prayed/agonized/worried/re-evaluated this school decision for our adoptive daughter.. She came home at 9 – we homeschooled for 2 years and then last year sent her to public school which we will do again this year. It is respite for the rest of us at home/the school provides all sorts of resources I could never keep up with and it really helps keep our relationship working on attachment instead of the learning struggles. But my heart still aches that this is the only option that works for us right now.
