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.

My Head is Spinning
Trent told me several months ago that he thought we would get a call in January. Of course, I didn't believe him because that would mean dissapointment if he was wrong. Well, he was right!!!
America World called today around 1:15 and told us that they had a match for us through the shared referral program. After praying and consulting with a physician, we decided to move forward with locking the referral. The next step is to receive an acceptance from China and at that time I believe we can share her picture with all of our friends and family. We are supposed to travel to get her in 4-6 months.
What I can tell you is that she turned 2 in January. She is cute as a button. We are praying for healing with her specific special needs and that she will get the nutrition and attention she needs to grow and transition into our family perfectly. Please join us in praying for Ruthie Henderson.
I will post pictures and details as soon as I get the ok.
Also- I am going to take this information and place in her scrapbook so feel free to comment and leave her messages.
