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.

The "And IFs"
*And if we don't get your TA by Chinese New Year, then you will experience a slow down due to China shutting down for 2 weeks.

*What if something happens to her while we are there?
*What if it is like Ruthie and stuff just doesn't arrive and no one knows why and then it takes forever?
At uncertain times like this, it is so good to know the God of "IFs"! Oh how much better is this IF...
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, IF you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
MOUNTAINS FOR MAGGIE!
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...
