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.

Better Late Than Never and a B&W Wednesday

We have a Chinese family that has been visiting our church off and on for the last 6 months. When I saw them Sunday, them mom said to me, "Happy New Year". I smiled and thought, "I guess it has been a long time since I have seen them". Well, I got home and pulled up my blog and saw all the "Happy Chinese New Year" posts on everyone else's blogs. OOPS! Totally forgot or better said, totally didn't know.

The good news is that Chinese New Year is celebrated for 15 days so I still have a little time to cook that Chinese dinner. Ruthie was given a beautiful dress by her Nana while we were in China, so I did dress her in that on Monday and took some pictures.

Enjoy and Happy Chinese New Year!

Adorable pictures. Her little smile just melts my heart. I didn't realize they celebrated CNY for 15 days! I thought it was just a week. Well, I sure hope all the special offices working on our paperwork open up soon again. We are hoping to get our TA soon!

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...
