Hello, my name is Dorothy.
There are two important things you should know about me…
I am a proud and thankful member of Al-Anon.
I am grateful to be a stay-at-home-mom to my two amazing girls.
Beth, my five-year old, is Autistic; Anne, my three-year old, is considered neurotypical, but loves to act just like her big sister. My girls each have their own unique abilities and perspectives, which often make their worlds magical places to be. Serenity Spectrum is a colorful combination of Al-Anon and Autism, which creates an extraordinary setting for homeschooling.
This will be my first year homeschooling; as with every new path in our journey, there is a mixture of apprehension and excitement. My eldest daughter attended public school for 2.5 years; whereas my youngest was only there a few months. Several factors contributed to our decision to homeschool; although I was beyond stressed in the beginning, I now have a peaceful calm about it, and cannot wait to start our school year.
Some of you may be long-time homeschoolers, others may be brand new (like me), and many of you may have children in public/private schools; regardless of the differences in our situations, I hope you will travel on this new path with us. I pray that together, by sharing our stories and experiences, we can help our children reach their God-given potential in a way that best suits them.
