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.

Please Pray for us Today
Well this is the last day of the 2nd week of June and we still have NOTHING. There is a website called China Adopt Talk that is a group composed of thousands of adopting parents. They have a chart of people's wait times. Other than 1 family that had something seriously wrong with their paperwork in November, we have been waiting longer than ALL OF THEM. The next group of people waithing for their paperwork were matched in MARCH!
This is such a hard position to be in because if we try to go through other means to check on our paperwork, we have been told that it could backfire on us, but we feel like just another number with our agency and sometimes they don't even return our calls. I am sure this is because they have nothing to tell us.
Please pray for us today that our paperwork would arrive and that if it doesn't we will handle the dissapointment ok and know what to do next.
Psalm 33:18-19 (New International Version)
18 But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him,
on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
19 to deliver them from death
and keep them alive in famine.
