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.

Ni Hao Y'all

Jack went sailing yesterday with an organization called Heart of Sailing. They take special needs kids out on sail boats. It was pretty cool except for the fact that there was another kid on the boat with us who has motion sickness. No I am not kidding and YES my mind asked the exact same question you are thinking right now. :)

Here are a few pictures from our adventure. Oh and please keep praying this week that Jack's doctor will call and schedule his follow up testing and that they will indeed find something that is treatable. We are so hopeful.

Oh and stay tuned because I am announcing a GIVEAWAY in the next few days!

Oh the joy of being on the water! And I love your quote for the week as well. Sounds likes something that might spill from my little prince's mouth as well.

Delighted to meet you! Hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. This looks like a refreshing place to get drenched in some serious goodness.

What an incredible sailing adventure (minus the sickness :(). I found you via Ni Hao Ya'll and notice you are a PT, I just started PT school this summer and so I would love to continue to read your life (maybe I'll get a glimpse of what mine might look like post-grad). Thank you for sharing and I will be praying for your little one! :)

On a boat with someone who is seasick. Not a good combo, I'm sure. But it does look like it was a beautiful day!
