    OT: Because I know you'll all celebrate with us!

    I just edited my signature (not that I post all that much, but I've loved all the wisdom on this board; it has really helped our homeschool)! AND, one month ago we were able to grow our family via the adoption of our five year old son! We are so excited and he is doing really well. He has a sweet heart, LOVES his big sisters, and is learning new things every day. We adopted him from China, so we are focusing on learning English this year and living and loving in a family. I literally just ordered Level A for him as he is functioning like a 3 year old, more or less, as he hasn't been in any educational setting at all. Anyway, I know you all celebrate life, too, so thought I'd put our happy announcement out there. <3

    *Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourself a difficult task but you will succeed if you persevere: and you will find joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to obtain something beautiful is ever lost. ~Helen Keller*

                          Congrats! What a joy!
                          There is such a need locally for foster parents that I keep wondering--could I homeschool/use MP with a child coming from an unstable home life? It's encouraging to see moms out there jumping right into homeschooling their adopted kids!
