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.

More from China Day 4

I missed some of the pictures, so this is a continuation of Day 4 (Trent for Ginny).

Lots of "Joy" at the pool.

Boys and their toys.

Look at this grin!

For the first hour, Yuan Yuan (older one) just sat on the side scared and wouldn't step in.  Then one of the translators was able to get her to hold her hand and go for it.  That child laughed and screamed for joy like I have never seen.

The entire time in the pool, Yuan Yuan squeeled with joy and then afterwards she stepped in front of me and jumped up and down laughing to express to me her excitement.  So the pool is a warm (non-chlorinated) spring pool that is inside.  Think of it like an extra large bathtub. 

It is NOTHING that I would choose to go in on my own.

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...
