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.

Getting Back to Normal

Well things seem to be settling back into normal at the house. Between getting home at 4:00 and now, I washed a folded 2 loads of laundry, unpacked, cooked dinner, delivered snacks to soccer practice, read with Jack, cleaned the kitchen, and broke up one fight over the Wii all while continually comforting one very sweet but very sad little girl. How quickly it all gets back into full swing here at the Henderson house.

Ruthie is recovering like normal. She is still in some pain and is pretty clingy, but is getting used to her new "weapon". I say give it a week and both boys will have bruises from interaction with the cast.

Thanks for all of your prayers. I can't say enough great things about our experience at Scottish Rite. They are wonderful people.

A few more pics from our stay at Scottish Rite:

Ruthie was not a fan of anything attached to her ankle. She removed her ID tag several times and here she is working a plan for removing the IV.

She just loved the little fish mobile and it saved me Wednesday afternoon when she was so upset. I actually have one of these in a baby box somewhere. Looks like I will be hunting that down for the toddler bed.

"I get to go home. YEAH!!"

Oh, we have the fish mobile box, and it has singlehandedly saved my sleep and sanity. I was wondering if it would attach to a toddler bed...

Good to hear things are approaching "normalcy." Glad the surgery went well.

Yea! For the good report. We've all been praying. Titus has been praying for "Jack's sister, Ruthie!"

Glad to know that everything went well at the hospital and that you are safely back home, settling back into the normalcies of life. Ruthie is such a trooper...poor girl. What is that pink 'block' thing around her cast? I've never seen one of those before. I'm glad to see that most of the discomfort is subsiding and hopefully she will be back to herself in no time!

Have a blessed weekend and know you remain in our thoughts and prayers! <><

Vulnerability, Mutual Respect, and the Pursuit of Healthy Relationships

I have been thinking a lot lately about what it looks like to pursue healthy relationships.  Like what if every relationship I was in could...
