That was the name of the seminar at AHEA (alberta home educators association - homeschool convention) that so poked at my secret fears and those lies that create shame - ("you're not a good enough mom or teacher, you don't have enough time to homeschool seven children, you let one slip through the cracks"...) that for much of it, i sat in the front row letting big fat tears roll down my cheeks.
"Who is here because they *know* their child has a learning disability?"
Hands are raised all across the room...
"Who is here because you *suspect* that there's something different with your child?"
More hands are raised - and i recognise the feeling of relief in the eyes of those other mommas and daddies as they get to say out loud, "i'm lookin' for answers..."
Homeschool mamas - it's ok to have littles that struggle.
The woman teaching the seminar gently poked at my protective heart; "God has a plan for *your child*".... Those learning quirks aren't going to disappoint the Father who *created* that wee one.
More on the convention tomorrow...
