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.

Not Sure What to Title This

RA's arrived today and again we got the email that ours was not in the batch. This is increasingly concerning to us. I am not sure what to say except that we are trying to decide what steps we need to take to advocate for this child whether she is ours or not.

Thank you for your prayers.

I keep checking your blog and praying you get some good news. My heart just aches for you and your family. I can only image how hard this is on you and Trent. Will keep praying for all of you and especially for Ruthie.
Take Care
Love to all of you!!

I'm so sorry. I received the email stating all calls had been placed & came right to your blog. My entire family is praying for you guys and Ruthie. Please let me know if we can do anything else.

Ginny and family,
My heart sank as I read your post. I am so sorry that you did not receive your RA today. We continue to cover your family in prayer. ((hugs))

Me too. I read the note on the AWAA site and came IMMEDIATELY to your blog. I admit it I was angry with God. I know He can take my anger anyway, but I am SO MAD right now. I just knew your RA would have been in that batch.

I have no words really. Please know I'm standing with you all whatever you decide. I have no doubt you are looking to God for the answer.

I am so sorry Ginny.

Like the others I came right away too. My heart dropped when I read this post. And I'm mad. Trust in the Lord. None of this waiting is a surprise to Him, so just continue to seek Him.

He makes all things beautiful in His time....I'm in tears just reading your post. How perfect is His timing, and how inscrutable are His ways. This I know for sure, His ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts above our thoughts. Your daughter is so beautiful. When we come to the end of ourselves, we find Him more than enough....
