Well, personally, I would have a really hard time leaving her there as is if it's getting to the point of disrupting her sleep.  But that's me.  CAN you take her down to half-day?  Are you able to stay home to homeschool her?


Have you been able to talk to her at all about what exactly is bothering her about school?  Did she have any kind of "mom leaves me here" experiences before this?


Is she adopted?  How old was she when she was placed?  And is it already finalized?


Answers to these questions would help us to help you better.
