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.

TA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOD DOES WORK MIRACLES FOR ME!!

I was just telling God this morning that I know He still works miracles, but I am just not sure He works them for me. Well, He PROVED ME WRONG! We got a call about 5 minutes ago that our TA arrived TODAY!!!!!


We missed the window to travel this Thursday by ONE DAY. However, because our agency is sending a big group to Chongqing and we had the July 4th holiday jacking with things, they are requesting that Ruthie's province make an exception and let us come. They can obviously tell us "no" so I am praying like crazy or shall we say continuing to pray like crazy that they tell us "YES"! That would mean that we travel in 3 days! We will know something tomorrow morning. Please pray they say yes. The other piece is that we have to get a consulate appointment, but the travel coordinator did not feel this would be as big of a deal.
