I had followed a story in our newspaper back in feb.  it was about a girl whose heritage was Indian and was put up fr adoption.  
http://www.saukvalley.com/2013/02/06/adopted-sterling-woman-searching- for-her-roots/a7ylgui/?page=1
I friended her on fb because her adopt name was mine before marriage.  Enc in her journey.  Lots of our frbearers were from nc.
Last night she pm me ask if I know anyone with this name, I said that was my aunt. Then she gave me mother name, I said my cousin.  She s my cousin once removed, given up fr adoption,  my cousin lived in town next to us.  She was a bit older thn I but no one in our side of fam knew she had a baby.
She saw her b mother my cousin Sunday, she admitted it and told her who father was and why she give up for adoption.
I went to see this lovely young woman today.  I hugged and hugged her and she cried.  She ad a nice childhood, her mom died year and a half ago.  I told my cousin, the mothers sister and she s friending her on fb.  She did know her sister had a baby but didn't know what happenned.  I hope thy meet.  
I often older why God took Kenny and not me, perhaps this might be part of the reason why?
Small world isn't it!

WOW is right!  Amazing story.  I ran across this stuff (not that personal) when I did family research for over 12 years.  Took a lot of time, money, travel and frustration but wouldn't take a million dollars for the experience.

So happy for you Sharon that you found a new close relative you didn't even know you had.  And yes it IS a small world!
