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.

Urgency with no end in sight

So I already feel this sense of urgency to go and get Ruthie before we go to family camp.  I have these motion pictures going through my head of sitting by the water in this incredible, prayed over place just playing with her and getting to know her for a whole week with no computers, cell phones, church emergencies, etc.  Oh this would be so great.  

Now, as if I needed something to fuel this great need to go and pick up my daughter, there is more.  I have been following a recent conversation on my Yahoo group for Ruthie's orphanage about the pressure rings the kids seem to have around their legs (like from tight elastic).  I saw them on Ruthie's referral picture but just figured that they had just changed her clothes.  Anyway, apparently other parents have seen pictures of their children with torn rags tied around their legs and have heard rumors that the orphanage uses these to tie them to their cribs so they don't crawl out.   I HAVE GOT TO GO GET THAT BABY TODAY!!! 

I am trying to put myself in the position of the nannies who have hundreds of children to look after and only limited arms and ability to chase and catch all of them.  I really don't want to criticize the orphanage, because I do believe that they are doing the best they can with what they have to take care of Ruthie.  I just hate to picture my daughter tied to her crib.  

Please pray that our RA and TA come VERY VERY soon and pray for the nannies that God will give them insight, strength, and compassion as they try to do the overwhelming task of caring for 600 children.

Ginny, we are praying for your RA. Thinking that Evan has spent over 4 years there has me wondering what stories he will share. Thankfully our children are in a better facility than some.

Hi Ginny. I found your blog today from Rose's. I had no idea you were this far along in your adoption process! How exciting! I know you are desperate now for it to go faster and I am praying that it will. Both for your family sake and for little Ruthie to get to her family soon!!

Hang in there!! Ruthie is also being cared for by her Heavenly Father who knows the number of hairs on her head!!!

Melissa said...

That is astonishing! I am lifting you, Trent and the Boys up in prayer every day and of course Ruthie also. God please let her come home soon!
