Before we adopted our first child, I had never heard of homeschooling. We assumed any child of ours would have the typical public school experience.

But when our daughter was born, I went from being completely immersed in my career as an attorney to being completely smitten with this beautiful little girl. It became more and more difficult for me to split my worlds between practicing law and the blessed experience of motherhood.

The decision to choose one over the other became easier when I gave birth to a biological child a mere 17 months later. Now we had two kids in diapers, two kids drinking bottles and a more than doubly complicated life.

Something had to give.
