This big ol' tiny world.

I recently joined Twitter. I know, right? What's an old goat like me doing on Twitter? I'm not really sure, but I have enjoyed it so far. Most of the people I follow are either comedians or friends. Or both. I'm not sure how or why, but I started following this very popular and prolific blogger/Twitter gal (I'm guessing b/c her name is @mommywantsvodka, which TOTALLY describes me). And she started this blog where I read this post--on which I commented. My comment led the woman who wrote the blog to MY blog, where SHE commented. And her comment led me to this post that she wrote.

And oh my God. The pure emotion that swept over me when I read it--the intense memories I have that match so closely to hers--it just made me weep. The realization that The Geej and I have come so far from that place where we'd just met--this tiny, expressionless baby and me, the terrified adoptive mother--was overwhelming. But I also hit me just how deeply connected we will both always be to our beginnings together.

Sometimes I feel like I'm alone in my experience, but then, through something as silly as Twitter, I connect with someone who makes me feel anything but alone.

It's crazy wonderful.

To take it a step further, I did write about you today. I hope you don't mind, but our comment conversations moved me so profoundly, I needed to share with the world the power of the written word.

My blessings to you, and if you need to talk to someone because you are feeling alone and nobody gets it...I am here. An email or a phone call away.
