It's a Small World Afterall...

For those of you who know me well, you know I am a self-proclaimed blog addict! I wouldn't say I'm technically addicted, but I am extremely fascinated with blogs and the connections that people have. I totally believe in that whole six degrees of separation theory. So follow me on this trip through blogland.

I follow a blog by a girl named Jennifer Woolley. I've never met her, but I found a link to her blog on Cindy Seay's blog. Cindy works at our adoption agency New Life, and we just love her! I follow Jen's blog because she and her husband are dealing with fertility issues--like we did.

So the other day I was reading her blog and saw a link to a blog called The Moores. I thought to myself, "Hmmm. Moore is a very common name, but wouldn't it be strange if these Moores were related to Martha Jane Moore that I teach with?" So I clicked the link. It took me to a beautiful family with a precious baby girl and pictures of yep, you guessed it, Martha Jane and her family! From there I linked to two of her other children where I got to see pictures of all her new grandbabies!

Excitedly I related this story to Martha Jane on Tuesday, and she told me that Jennifer and her husband were in the same Sunday School class with her son and daughter-in-law at First Baptist Houston. She also told me that Jen's husband is named after the pastor of the church where we both work because their families were good friends before moving to the area.

I just think this proves that we live in a much smaller world than we think! And we never know how God is going to place people in and around us! Happy blogging!

Wow, I hadn't read your blog in a while and just saw this post!
That is just such a crazy small world!
Yes, my Rusty is actually Thomas Andrew III, but "Little Rusty" named after "Big Rusty" Walton! He joked about the name when Rusty was born and it stuck! Please give him our love!
The entire Moore family is just amazing. I loved getting to meet all of them when sweet Caroline was born!
Thanks for sharing the connection! How fun!

YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS!!! I read your blog today for the first time because you sent the sweet email about dinner the other night (which we GREATLY enjoyed), and I followed the link. Anyway, I was scanning through and saw the name Jennifer Wooley. She is the AMAZING nurse that helped deliver Cooper! We fell in love with her and she shared her story with us back in August on Cooper's birthday. She was with us all day and then came back to visit the morning before we left. I have a beautiful picture of me, her and Cooper. I call her "Cooper's first girlfriend." I think of her often, and I was amazed to see that you mentioned her. How crazy!

DANA!!! My sweet friend! Thank you for your kind words! Of course, I remember you and Mr. Cooper. I hope that you are doing well. I would love to hear from you.
