Tickled Pink

Tickled Pink BLOG IT

The response to yesterday's post has me tickled pink!

I thought that there would be a good deal of interest, but never imagined all the heartfelt and encouraging words that I received.

Many of you chose to personally email me and not only express your interest in photography classes, but also decided to tell me a little bit about yourselves and in a some cases, shared your own adoption experiences and love for China and their children.

I am almost at a loss for words.....

The emails were so touching and I want to personally reply to each and every one of you. It is just going to take me a few days to make my way through my inbox, but I will be in contact with you shortly.

Thank you again for the continued support and the love you share for these precious children.

This was one of my favorite photos taken the morning I met Reagan in Changsha.
Thank you Marla!
Not only were you there with me every step of the way, you photographed all these special moments for us.
Such an invaluable gift.
Luv Ya Girl!!

Loved following your blog when you traveled to China to get Reagan. Just checked out the Half the Sky site and our newest granddaughter was in the group photo! Thanks! Called my daughter and she was so excited to be able to add another photo to Saidie's photo album from the orphanage! God bless you!
In Christian Love,
Grandma to 2 Granddaughters from China!

Absolutely stunning pictures!

So glad you had such a great response, Lisa!!! You will do fabulous things and so many will be touched by your gifts! Wish I could attend a class, but my plate is full for a couple of semesters while I am back in school. I can't wait to follow your journey! Congrats :)

Great picture, so wonderful you do have so many amazing photos from your journey.
We posted on the 6th about "pink" too, different meaning, same color. Don't our little girls look great in it (and you do too!).

Lisa, I'll have to say that I also didn't have any doubts that you would get a huge response to this. Especially since you're opening up and doing something online as well. That'll surely broaden your student pool. I can't wait until we hear more.

And every time I see that picture of you with Reagan I am so moved. To have such a precious moment captured is amazing.

Hi Lisa! How sweet of you to stop by my blog...thank you so much for your kind words! :-) I saw you're name and was like "woa." You made my morning. ;-)

I have been following your story with Reagan; what an amazing journey. She is absolutely precious. I can't remember if I wrote to you before, but I just adore your middle gal. She looks like she could have some major spunk - LOL! And I love how her hair always looks "in motion." Oh wow, what a cutie!

Thank you again so much for your encouragment. (And now I'm all teary because of the music on your blog! I love "Bless the Broken Road.") ;-) Have a wonderful weekend! XO

Isn't it brilliant to proof-read your comment AFTER you post it - sheesh! Please excuse the typos - LOL!, and I know I've written to you before... I just wasn't sure if I mentioned Sarah's cuteness! :-)
