Twitter is More Than What You Had for Lunch!
For information junkies, Twitter is crack. All those facts and figures at your fingertips! You think Facebook causes you to lose track of time? Just wait until you try Twitter! But wait - I am not knocking Twitter, I am praising it. So much information, so many resources at your command. You can even organize your "tweets" by subject matter. Woo-hoo - you are speeding off down the information highway in your snazzy convertible! Today's blogpost highlights resources that might be of interest to our Hope Families and other adoptive parents. As always, please remember that all links are for information purposes only and are not warranted for content, accuracy, or any other implied or explicit purpose.
