Hello, I am a new widow and on top of that I am a new homeschooler. I had
plans to homeschool my sons, though not totally supported by my husband,
before his motorcycle accident that killed him on August 1st. Most people
assumed that I would put my oldest son in public school now, but that didn't
cross my mind then. It has a couple of times since, but not very seriously and
now I know that I won't if I am still alive and kicking because I know that God
has called me to it. It is why I am still here and they are my life. God has
given me these three boys to raise in Him, and I will with His help. I would
like to meet, talk to other single parent homeschoolers. I recently went to a
homeschool convention and felt a little like an outsider with all the happy,
close couples, many with newborn babies. While I didn't feel judged, because
nobody really knew me, I felt like I might be...after all if I am single, I must
also be divorced right? Divorce isn't very supported in the conservative,
christian homeschool circles, and thus I would be already kicked down a peg.
However, I am not divorced, I am a widow, I am the single mom of three little
boys, and I have the job of being their mother and their father, not to
mention their guide, their bible instructor, their teacher, their nurse, etc. I
am doing, joyfully, the job God has called me to do and I hope that other
sites like this will keep giving support to those of us who are single parent
homeschoolers...either it was our choice or not.
