So sorry to hear of your situation. I had a difficult marriage for
years. He was always supportive of homeschooling until it was
time to get divorced.

It is a difficult time separation and divorce but I felt I had to
continue homeschooling for my children. I wanted to keep their
lives as normal as possible. Their father left... I didn't want them to
feel I left them too. They had never gone to school so that would
have been a totally foreign experience. And they had been through
enough in my estimation.

I had people tell me lots of things that weren't helpful including
that I would never have time or money as a single mom. I choose
to actively disregard their comments. And listen to what God said.

He had a plan for me. And it is still being worked out. My divorce
was finalized in 2008. I am able to cover my expenses between
my two family house and a home business that came into my life
at the right time. Those are my main income sources with some
child support too.

I knew that going back to work and kids in school would mean a
hectic life for me... so I was willing to risk on myself... for the hope
of a better way. I hadn't worked in 10 years. And I would have
been entering a difficult job market. The idea of 40 to 60 hours at
a job and coming home to homework... not to mention that I would
miss my time with the kids... really propelled me to look for
another way.

I would suggest getting creative. What are your assets? Can you
rent a room if you have a house? What are you good at?
Depending on your children think about how you might be able to
mentor them in a business too. I always am looking to see how I
can incorporate everything into my homeschooling life. My
daughter knows how to do Quicken (she is 11). So that covers
math, organizational skills, business, etc. We listen to lots of
books on CDs. I look to make the most out of our time.

God has a plan for you and your children. Seek wisdom from
others, ask for help, and listen for His answers to your situation. If
God wants you to continue to homeschool, He will make a way.

Hope that is helpful.
