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.

I Can't Believe She is 6

I am discovering something about adoption.  Time starts in a mom's heart when she first sees her baby.  For Ruthie, that was when she was 2 so when my baby girl turned 6 this week, it felt very much to me like she was turning 4.  

It is very cold here (40 degrees!) so we stayed inside for her birthday pics.  Okay I know the rest of you are experiencing much colder temperatures, but for us in Houston, this is a really cold winter.  We haven't hit 80 degrees in at least 2 weeks. :)



Some sweet friends brought Ruthie ice cream for her special day.  As a family, we took a trip to San Antonio to celebrate.  Pictures from that to come soon.
