If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

I have never really thought about calling you by your Chinese name before mainly because God gave us the name Ruthie before I ever really knew who you were. I looked up the meaning of Mei today and it is "beautiful". It is a great name for you because you really are very pretty. I am starting to wonder if we should name you Ruthie Mei Karen instead of Karen Ruth. I can't imagine not having Karen in your name because it will be such an honor to be named after your Nana. I just think keeping part of your Chinese heritage makes sense and Ruthie Mei is just so cute. Your father is sitting on it like he does most decisions so I guess I will know his thoughts on the topic in a few days. Ruthie Mei Karen???
