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.

Remember My Last Update on Jack When I Wrote...
Well it looks like He might be doing it again. Let me catch you up on our week. Jack had a Neurosurgery appointment on Tuesday that honestly I thought was going to be the last step in the process that put the idea of surgery behind us. I really wasn't expecting anything at all. You can imagine then how surprised I was when he walked in and said, "I was just talking to your neurologist and I believe that we have a 50% chance of solving Jack's problems with surgery."
He said that Jack's symptoms don't look just like a tethered cord because he isn't having bladder problems, but that his cord is definitely low and that would cause the symptoms he is having. He said the motion study we did was inconclusive. So we have decided to go for it. How could we not, right? I want Jack to know that we did everything we could and I am praying that this is our answer.
ON ANOTHER NOTE WITH JACK
When we were in Cancun, we came across an excursion that allowed you to feed sharks from a tank in the water. Jack LOVES sharks. He can tell you which ones are in which oceans, how big they are, where they swim, and what they eat. You should have seen his face light up when he heard about this. There was no way I could say no. Here are a few pictures from that excursion.
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...
