We Love Hearing from You
Below is a small collection of messages we have received from you. Thank you for helping to move the needle!
I know you probably receive a lot of messages on a daily basis, regarding your book. I just finished it tonight (“In a Heartbeat”) and all I could think was wow, I have to reach out to this woman. The BlindSide is one of my absolute favorite movies. I read your book because I wanted to learn more about the family who lived this amazing story. Little did I know, how much you, and your book would ultimately change me. You are an absolutely amazing woman, who honestly, has the best outlook on life. Too often we all go through life not enjoying the "little moments" and looking down on others who aren't as fortunate as us. I am extremely guilty of this. Even working as a nurse, I find myself turning a blind eye to people who might just need a little extra attention. --- I've read plenty of books (guilty pleasure) and watched plenty of movies that have had wonderful giving stories. But I have truly never been so inspired by another person, in my entire life. I want to let you know that you honestly have completely changed the way I look at other people and also have changed the way I choose to live my life from here on out. I know how wonderful it feels to hear a little positive feedback sometimes. So, I had to reach out to you to let you know that you are incredible. Thank you for writing that wonderful book. But most importantly, thank you for inspiring me to be a better person. May you, and your family be blessed for many years to come.

Thank you SO MUCH for thinking of us this year and sending such a FUN box our way!!! We were greatly surprised to open it and find NEW shirts for this year….along with all of the other amazing things. The posters have already found a home in the room, my students are sporting Ole Miss bumper stickers on their family’s cars, the cookies were delicious and we ALL wear our number 38 button each day! Again, thank you for your generosity and for your encouragement of the “Michael Oher”s” in my classroom. We love you!!!……and I personally love and appreciate you for the example of giving you provide for our nation.
I wrote to you about my son David’s desire to adopt a 16 year old visually impaired girl. To our great delight and gratitude you responded with words of encouragement and support. Marina’s mother had passed away when she was ten. Marina and her brother lived in many foster homes both while their mother was alive and after death. We all love Marina so much, and if you had not made Michael part of your family then I don’t think Marina would be part of our lives today. I would and do strongly recommend adoption of older children, the process is fairly easy and rewards are immense.
I just wanted to thank Collins Tuohy for coming to Vincennes University in Vincennes, IN. She is a star model and more people need to be like her and the Tuohy family. I’m African American and I was adopted by a Caucasion woman and that was back when I was 6 or 7. I’m 23 now. I also have two other African American adopted siblings. None of us are blood related. Hearing Collins talk reminded me that it’s ok to have a different family.
