The Perfect Family Plan For Us, Only Child
Being parents to an only child was never in our family planning. I would have chosen for myself a houseful of children, while my husband would have been content with 2-3. We learned early on in our marriage that family planning belongs not to us, but to God. Letting go of our preconceived ideas of family planning we sought to live contentedly as only a couple.
Meet Little Man, Our Only Child
Two weeks later we brought home our precious Little Man. It’s been over 11 years since that day and while having an only child wasn’t the plan we envisioned we now realize that His plan for our life was the perfect plan for us.
While only child families who are homeschooling are in the minority we are not alone. In fact, I have 4 friends in real life who are homeschooling only children and I know several more online. Whatever your family looks like, is the “normal” that is perfect for you.
