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.

Who would have thought?

When we got Ruthie 3 years ago, she was terrified of stuffed animals.  It was really sad because someone would hand her a gift, she would open it, see a stuffed animal, and burst into tears terrified.

Now, 3 years later, her best date is a trip to Build a Bear.

I took her Wednesday and she picked out a cute little puppy.  She was so excited she was speechless.  All she could do was nod or shake her head when I asked her questions.  She stuffed him, gave him a heart, bathed him, and completed the experience with a John Deere tractor hat and a birth certificate. 

It got even cuter when we left the store and head out to lunch.  She paraded her "Patch" the puppy through the mall like he was the greatest purchase Baybrook had ever seen.

And now 3 days later, she still hasn't let him go.
