'I met Paula initially to conduct a homestudy for the purpose of adoption and over the years have developed a deep admiration and respect for her as a person. Paula is the epitome of the ideal mother. She homeschooled her eight children for many years, giving the greatest of stimulation, nurturing and love to each of them.
Paula does not spare herself and it is my professional opinion that she gives her all to her children. I have found her to have enough energy to teach and still have fun with them. Rarely have I come across such happy, well functioning children. They have all flourished under her care.
Paula has wisdom and integrity. She handles stress well, has excellent inner strength and is a good decision maker.' - February 2023
