I have read many places lately that people today are lonely. They have less friends on average than years ago and most of their interaction is online. This whole concept hit home last night, when I needed to talk to someone and I choose one of my sorority sisters I have not seen since the day we graduated college (more than 10 years ago), but talk to almost daily on yahoo messenger. When we were in college I talked to her all the time about things I felt I could talk to no one else about. She was the best person to talk to in college and last night she was amazing to talk to as well, but back to the point, I talked to her online instead of any number of friends that I could call. And if it has to do with the adoption I will write about it on here but tell no one (other than my husband) that I actually see. Part of me thinks that is because most everyone who reads this understands better than anyone else the whole adoption process. (I mean just last night I heard yet ANOTHER story about a family member who adopted from Russia and in between the trips got pregnant - like the baby was some sort of magic worker.) Does anyone else find this happening in their lives?
