My family is originally from the USA, but both my paternal and maternal grandparents moved to Brazil in 1952 as missionaries. My mother's parents began homeschooling my mother and her siblings in the 1960's since the only other option would be to send them over 800 miles south. Even though my father wasn't homeschooled he agreed to it in the 1980's while we lived in the southern state of Rio Grande so Sul. My siblings and I, along with three of our cousins, were homeschooled during this time. Today my Brazilian wife, Taciana, and I, are homeschooling our two children. I have 14 other nieces and nephews, 13 of which are being homeschooled today.
