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.

In our travel group we had 3 babies from here, another 5 from another orpphanage. They said that our orphangae (here) looked like the HIlton compared to theirs. We did get Half the Sky report of our daugher that showed her at 6months when she was given up. I am so excited for you and wish you God speed.
