Thank you for your input. It is a great blessing for all the parents that seek the solace and companionship of kindred spirits that you would take the time to share your thoughts through this forum. It is indeed a real struggle to get past the 'fears' of the unknown and to enter into the lifestyle that one deep down feels called to be a part of. I admire your courage and I too will keep you in my daily prayers. I believe that for many parents, when faced with the choice between such opposing factors as you describe, the choice to homeschool is not only necessary but peaceful.
Let us offer up our prayers this day for all those parents that find they are in the midst of choices that cause them concern. Let us pray for the empowerment of the Holy Spirit that will allow us to walk forward into what we do not know trusting in the Lord to guard and guide.
Sending out a prayer,
