Well, to make a REEEEALLY long story short. I have a 16 yr old daughter who my ex had custody of for the past 4 years...along with my other 4 kiddos. Well, she ran away this week ..he is an abuser....now it looks like he is finally giving up! He is talking about giving me custody of her this weekend. I will be traveling to the US to get her. She was homeschooled for years before he got custody. Has been in school for a few years now..though they knocked her back a grade when placing her in school (for spite of hs). So, she wants to make the best decision...whether to stay in the US with my parents and finish out this year or...come to Canada which she prefers...and either homeschool out this year or maybe another alternative??? She definately wants to finish school to get a diploma...not sure how homeschooling works here though....can you get a diploma still ...can she take some classes and some HS???? I just don't know how it works here as I am a new Canadian and this was sprung on me last night...am looking for some help so if ANYONE has any please...and she has been in an abusive situation so I want this to be as smooth as possible..she is a very free thinker and art minded person...if this helps...thanks...will look forward to replies...I leave tomorrow....oh btw..I am in Quebec.
