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.

Movin' Along with Some New Things to Pray For

First, let me say THANK YOU SARA FOR MY NEW HEADER! Isn't it great to have friends with cool skills who don't mind using those skills to bless their friends? Sara you rock!

We received our first set of travel planning documents today. They gave us the projected travel dates of July 30-Aug 12th. I was a little dissapointed because I was hoping we would travel a a week or 2 earlier than that. Jack starts school the week after we would get back and so that could be crazy and would not give him much time with her before he is gone most of the day. Trips go about about every 2 weeks so there is probably a group leaving around the 15th of July. I am praying that our TA comes quick enough for us to jump in with that group even if it is at the last minute. I figure it is my turn to have my paperwork arrive early. :)

You can also pray for the financial numbers. This trip is obviously going to be very expensive and taking the boys with us makes it more. Things like the price of our plane tickets, hotel, etc could fluctuate enough to make a big difference in cost. We are also trying to see if skipping the Beijing touring could save us a lot. Please pray that we are pleasantly surprised by how low these final numbers are.

Thanks again for walking this road with us.
Officially the mom of Ruthie now!
