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.

You Were Right!
When we had been waiting for what felt like forever, you told me that once Ruthie got here, that time would seem like forever ago. Well, she has been here for 2 weeks and it feels like we have had her for months. I hope that offers some speck of encouragement to those of you who are still waiting. What they say is true.
Ruthie is continuing to adjust beautifully. I am amazed at how quickly she has gotten comfortable with her surroundings. I had prepared myself for months of having her connected to my side, but she isn't like that at all. Sunday she followed Sam into his Sunday school class and wanted to stay and play. Tonight she ran through the cul-de-sac with the neighborhood kids like she has known them for years. It is really great to see.
I am headed to Texarkana tomorrow to introduce Ruthie to some of the extended family. From there, we will go to Waco for the weekend to see friends. I am not sure if I will have time to blog while I am gone, but I am sure I will have lots of pictures to post when we return.
Have a great week.
