Oh, Mary Ellen ~ I hardly have the words to express my gratitude to you for this post. I have printed it out to read (and re-read), especially as I prepare for Earlybird's first official year of learning at home. Thank you for these wise and wonderful words - I cannot wait to hear more. :)

Mary Ellen, thank you for this. I wait eagerly for your next posts. I especially love "...when you first begin you will learn far more than he will".

Beautifully done, Mary Ellen, I am just embarking on homeschooling Christina, who has Down syndrome, and have gotten a LOT of flack from the school officials. Not that I didn't expect it, but you face down a roomful of scowling experts and see how secure you feel afterward!
You have given me hope, and I'm going to link to this post, so I can come and re-read it when necessary!

Beautiful! I came to see the infamous typos (could it be as bad as she said?), but what I found was uplifting, shining, good, holy and true. Thank you for enticing me here and then giving me so much more than I expected!

Very, very well written. thank you.
My special needs kiddo is 4 and we'll be wading into kindergarten this upcoming year. Slowly, but surely we'll do our best!

This post should be required reading for anyone beginning to homeschool a special needs child. I wish I had known when I started out how much prayer would help! But of course I'm still learning, too. Thanks for writing this. :-)

Hello! I have been reading your blog since I read about Ryan's death on the 4real learning boards. My 5yo son was diagnosed with autism yesterday. We suspected it back when I found your blog, and I would read about Ryan and study his face, looking for some kind of clues there that would tell me more about my own son. I know that sounds really silly, but there it is. Thank you for these posts.We are trying to decide whether we should homeschool our son. We homeschool our older two and always intended on homeschooling this child, but now we are being strongly discouraged from doing so. I'm not sure what we are going to do, but I'm looking forward to reading the rest of your series.
