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.

A Great First Few Days

Okay so I think I have the sweetest baby girl ever. She is so good and so easy. She just walks around, smiles, and laughs all the time. Every time I go to get her out of her car seat, she greets me with this big open mouthed grin like she is so happy to see me. Here are a few pictures from her first few days at home.

Also- We had x-rays done Monday and they said that she has all of her bones and joints in her arms and hands. This is good news because that means that her restriction is all soft tissue related and treated most likely without surgery.
