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.

Gettin' Ready

Dear Ruthie- We are getting everything ready for your arrival.  The only thing I haven't done is to put up your bed.  There is a queen size bed in your room that I am waiting on Nana to come and get before I put your toddler bed together.  Here are a few picture of some things in your room and their significance.

I made this canvas for you last week.  Behind the butterflies are 2 verses:
Proverbs 25:25 Like cold water to a weary soul, So is good news from a distant land. 
Ruth 1:16 where you go, I will go, and where you stay, I will stay. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God.

This dresser used to be brown and it was your dad's when he was growing up.  We painted it to match your new bed

This trunk was given to my parents as a wedding gift.  I painted it, added the flowers, and had the cushion on top made to match your bedding.  Sharon Rice made the cushion for you.  Mommy isn't that good.

This was given to me today by a member of our church, Rhonda Chambers.  She made this just for you.  Our friends at church cannot wait to meet you.  You are already loved by so many people.

I love you Ruthie,

You did a beautiful job. I love the canvas with scriptures you painted. It is very pretty. I also love how you were able to use some of your parents belongings to hand down to your daughter. How special is that!

Praying that you receive your RA soon.
