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.

Where is my head?
It seems like in everything I do lately, I have Ruthie on my brain. Everywhere I take my boys, I wonder what it will be like to go back there with 3 kids next time and will she enjoy it?Everytime I see an Asian child, doesn't matter if she is Chinese, Korean, or even Vietnamese, I try and picture her as Ruthie and wonder what that will feel like some day.
Well, I write another blog other than this one (www.heritagewomen.blogspot.com) and when I was updating it the other day on an outreach that our women's ministy is doing, my brain was so on Ruthie that I posted that entry to this blog. So if you looked at this blog and wondered why I was writing about hurricane destroyed San Leon, it was not because I had too much to drink, but because I have Ruthieitis and it is now affecting my ability to function in everyday tasks.
My incredible husband and kids are being really patient with me right now. Thank you for joining the circle of people extending grace to the crazy woman.
One more thing- I am posting a weekly prayer request for Ruthie in the right column here. I covet your prayers.
