Another reason to love librarians’ online communication methods: the response to Michelle Boule Smith, and, more specifically, baby Gideon. Michelle, aka Jane of A Wandering Eyre, commented on the outpouring of support she and Ries have gotten since Gideon’s birth and his time in the NICU.
There are people all over this country praying for them, sending them love and support, and talking to each other over email, IM, and Twitter, ensuring that we’ve all heard the latest news, seen the latest post, and know what’s going on with the family Smith.
Because we’re a community. I love that.
