The Gerwitz Family’s journey began in 1986.

  1. I didn’t feel called to homeschool – I was an education major who wanted to change the world – I loved kids and I had a purpose of educating and making the world a better place.
  2. After the birth of my first child, I happily stayed home because I couldn’t bear to leave him home. As I watched him grown, then we had another child.
  3. I am not proud to admit that I talked people out of homeschooling! But the Lord had other ideas.
  4. At this time, I started noticing some delays in my son – and even with all of my intervention, he just seemed a little slower in grasping.
  5. After fighting with the school board and the academic placement of Neal – I happened to meet a lady whose child had the same diagnosis of my son of Mosaicism – she was a wonderful lady who used hands-on materials and taught me so much by example.
  6. My husband and I prayed and he decided I should try it for 6 months.
  7. We never looked back and homeschooled all five of our children.
  8. Letting Go and letting God is a decision I made almost every day.
