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.

Sunday Snapshot

When we first got Ruthie, she was terrified of dogs.

She even screamed and cried when anyone gave her a stuffed animal and that was hard because she was given several stuffed animals in those early days.

At first we thought maybe she had never seen a dog, but then she would cry, "No go go".  We learned that the Chinese word for dog sounded a lot like go go so clearly she knew what they were.

Poor Max didn't get much attention in those first few months, but that soon changed and now they are good friends.  In fact, I am pretty sure max is a few pounds heavier from all the snacks she gives him.
