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.

I am back from Family Camp.   As always, it was a refreshing time of spiritual growth in the midst of family bonding.  I learned a lot and I am still trying to process it all so I can hopefully share it with you soon.  

From what I understand, our agency did not receive any RAs this week.  This is a little odd because they tend to come at least every two weeks and this last Thursday was a 2 week mark.  When we did not receive a call on Thursday I really hoped and somewhat expected to receive one Friday.  Friday afternoon I went on a cattle round up and did not have my phone on me.  I was really hoping Leah, my family coordinator, would call then just so I could call her back and say,  
"Sorry I missed your call Leah, I was rounding up the cattle".  I bet she has never heard that one before.  

While I am processing the lessons of family camp, I will leave you with one cool thing I heard this week.  This dear Chinese nanny I met told me that "I love you" in Chinese sounds like "What I need".  How great is that?  
Yes Ruthie that is what you need and God willing I will bring it to you very soon.

Vulnerability, Mutual Respect, and the Pursuit of Healthy Relationships

I have been thinking a lot lately about what it looks like to pursue healthy relationships.  Like what if every relationship I was in could...
