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.

Next Surgery Update and A Trip to the Zoo

Hello Everyone! This week I took Ruthie and Jack to Dallas for a trip to the zoo and a 6 month check up at Scottish Rite for Ruthie. We saw Dr. Ezaki who is the hand specialist and very impressive. I have been reading some of her research lately and lets just say that she is "the stuff", "the bomb", "the shizzle for rizzle" or whatever phrase your teenager has taught you to say that she knows her stuff.

Anyway, I went in ready to tell her that I thought we should just leave everything alone because Ruthie is compensating so well to do whatever she wants, but Dr Ezaki made a great point that with Ruthie's left hand turned out (ulnar deviated) it will be real hard for her to use a keyboard someday and it is best to correct that now and let her learn to use it in neutral. So we are most likely having surgery in October to reposition her left wrist. There is a small chance they could call us if someone cancels before then like they did last time, but we will plan for October.

Here are a few pictures from our trip to the zoo

Yes that is my children petting a camel. Did I mention that they rode that camel too?

That is our Yaya. She met us at the zoo. Lauren (Yaya) was our first adopted child. :)
