Although we have never interacted, I want to thank you for all you have done to help me become a mother. I'll be homeschooling my 8 year old daughter (along with my 4 year old daughter) this upcoming year. It is my first year homeschooling, but your early years information when the eight year old was little greatly influenced our family life during a very difficult time in our family. When I decided to homeschool, I initially felt I could never do Waldorf because I'm not many things that I think an ideal Waldorf teacher would be. But with all the support you guys offer, as well as the wonderful materials, and local contacts, I feel our family can heal through the school year even while it will be a time of adjustment and stretching.
