Homeschool – Why We Love It

When my step-son came to live with us, he was well past school age.  He is a very special, special-needs child who will never think and perceive beyond the mind of a 5-year-old child.  So, when he came to live with us, my teaching him was on the very basics of life.  He hadn’t learned…
