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.

Dear Ruthie- 

We requested updated records for you today.  The ones we have are from 6 months ago and I want to know if you are walking yet, how are your hands, and how much have you grown.  Leah our adoption coordinator said we should know next week if they are going to be able to provide those to us.  

On another note, I started painting your room today.  It is pink and yellow and looks like a bright happy day.  I hope it isn't overstimulating.  Sam did a really cute thing while I was painting.  He brought a stack of legos, 2 trains, and a plastic hammer and set them on your floor so you would have toys when you got here.  It was so sweet to see him take the initiative to share his toys with you and you aren't even here yet.  He is going to be a great big brother.  Jack keeps saying that he wants to teach you to read so I hope you are somehow learning english there because Jack is jumping straight to reading when you arrive.  

We love you and are praying to get to see you soon

I have been thinking a lot lately about what it looks like to pursue healthy relationships.  Like what if every relationship I was in could...
