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.

Today is Ruthie's 3rd Birthday. She wasn't sure what to think when we were singing to her this morning, but she knew exactly what to do when her cake arrived.

We are waiting a few weeks to have her party since her birthday was so close to Christmas. I guess that just makes for a longer celebration!
