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.

2. So why get your DPT? Because I feel passionately called to serve others through physical therapy and this felt like something I needed to do in order to best live out that calling in my life. Through this program, I learned a lot about the profession and treating patients that I would not have learned in the clinic alone.
