I'm unable to receive text messages from a friend of my in the United States. She's able to receive messages from me just fine, but when she tries to reply, she gets a message saying that I have message blocking enable; yet I'm able to receive texts from everyone else on my contact list just fine. [Though they are all in Canada, like me.]

"Free Msg: Unable to send message - Message Blocking is active."

That's blocking on your friends end. Not every carrier allows international sending. If she's using an Android have her grab Google voice from the play store. She can use that to convert your number to a usa number and she can text you from there.

On iPhone have her visit http://Google.com/voice
