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.

Happy Gotcha Day

2 Years and 6 months ago, I saw her picture for the first time.  I was scared to death, but still knew instantly that she was meant to be mine.

After 6 of the longest months of my life, I finally saw her face to face.

She was not quite as happy to see me...

But that soon changed and I had one very happy little girl on my hands. 

I just can't believe it has been 2 years since Wen Mei Peng became Ruthie Mei Karen Henderson.

Happy Gotcha Day sweet girl.  I love you and feel so very blessed to be your mommy!
