Inspiration from @LeezaGibbons
It's always cool when someone you like takes the time to respond online. @LeezaGibbons was so nice during our interview, but she also has inspired some of you.
I wanted to share part of an email sent in response to our interview with Leeza:
Michelle, I read with interest your article on Leeza Gibbons' new book. I am a member of a group of Breast Cancer survivors and supporters in Brunswick County that provide “comfort bags” to oncology surgeons to give to patients when they are informed they have breast cancer. We always include inspirational books to hopefully help the patient get through the most tragic time of their life. Your review of Leeza Gibbons' book seems to be a good choice for us to include because it’s emphasis is on taking charge of your life and that is what cancer patients must do in order to survive. "
Heart causes are so important - we are more likely to be impacted by heart disease as opposed to cancer. So many of us need to be better to our hearts!
We had so much fun at the Crystal Heart Ball to raise money for the American Heart Association. I know a ton of money was raised - my mouth nearly hit the floor during some of the amazing bids during the live auction!
Our mistress of ceremonies was my lovely friend and co-worker, Frances Weller. And, my date was the incredible Sanah Sayani. Special thanks to the board members who put together a fantastic event... very pleased WECT and Fox Wilmington were sponsors.
"I wrote 'Take Two' because I think at some point in life we lose ourselves a bit. And, along the way we need a little tune up, a little tweek, maybe we need a major transformation or maybe we just need to take charge." - Leeza Gibbons
We recently interviewed TV personality Leeza Gibbons on her new book. She had so many wise things to say, so I wanted to share them.

The 'America Now' host also answered a question from a Google Plus hangout. We hosted one alongside the live interview so that people could get a behind-the-scenes look and feel connected with Leeza.
If you've ever wanted to make kimchi, now's your chance! I'm going to show you how this Sunday at 6 p.m. EST on YouTube. We'll be on Larry Fournillier's channel.
It's the third episode of the Korean Kitchen. See our other episodes or search #KoreanKitchen.
"I would like to congratulate +Michelle Li for making it onto the Suggested Users List. You go, girl. (c:" - Stormy Henderson
Of course I am thrilled to be featured on Google Plus's Suggested User List. But, I'd actually just like to take the time to do two things: thank the people who thought I was worthy enough to be added, and introduce the SUL to potential Google Plus users.
This is a screenshot of the News section! Thanks to +Stormy Henderson for snapping it and sharing! Now... what are you waiting for?
My journey as a super adoptee
"Parents may be surprised to hear how some adoptees talk about one another. My friends categorize us as either angry adoptees or super adoptees. It’s certainly not scientific, and it’s definitely not absolute. In fact, it’s just an opinion. However, it could lead people to a good discussion." - Michelle, What's Stopping You From Being Super?
I am so thankful for the chance to write for Holt International's online magazine. I am very passionate about adoption causes and post-adoption services.

This month, I shared some ramblings about being a "super adoptee."
I share how I became one, though it wasn't exactly something I was trying to achieve. Thanks to Ashli Keyser for her great editing and efforts on the online mag!
It's time for another social media tip from Say It Social. I actually use Google Plus events several times a week. Check it out below the pic!
Google Plus makes it easy to host an event that allows people to share moments as they happen and relive them when they’re over. If you’re hosting Hangouts on Air, and you’re not using the events feature, you could be cutting off people from the very thing you’re trying to do.
