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.

Something you may want to be a part of

The Yahoo group for Ruthie's orphanage (that I am a part of) has been paying for 2 full time PTs to work in her orphanage for the last couple of years. This year's fundraiser has not gone as well because of the economy. They just extended it by a few weeks in hopes of making up the difference. I have seen several pictures of the PTs working with the children in the therapy room at the orphanage. My dream would to be able to help these PTs through a short term trip some day. Would you consider giving to being able to keep these guys treating the hundreds of special needs kids there? They are about $2000.00 short, but every $10 gift makes a difference.

Here is the info:

Donations can be made via CCAI (Chinese Children Adoption International) which makes them tax-deductible for US residents.

And, donations can be made via the web, so overseas families can also contribute. >

Today's Side Note: Ruthie this morning in her dress that she got for Christmas from her Aunt Johnette. Oh and I curled her hair! :)
