Gracias, chifrew - I would like to convey the idea of "welcoming", rather than just "accepted" in a few words (without sounding too unschooled and am having difficulty with finding a word besides "bienvenida". What do you think?
In Mexican Spanish (most common in this part of the US), "Agradecemos sus preguntas" would have more of a meaning of "We are grateful for your questions". Am I nitpicking too much? I don't want to be "grateful" (smacks of desperation), but just "welcoming". This is going, to be difficult, I see.
