    Hi Catherine,
    I just placed an order for some of your wonderful sunflower pictures! Also, since I know Ana, your Exchange student and her aunt, Rosa from Valencia, I was thrilled to see the outstanding photography work you did with Ana. I know she has grown in maturity and become more outgoing since I saw her in Canada 2 years ago and you’ve helped her even more in that process, I’m sure. God Bless you and know that you’ve made a difference in her life. Karen YatesReplyCancel
