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.

We have her!!!  Everything went great.

We were a few minutes late getting there because it took us longer at the bank than we expected.  As soon as we arrived and turned the corner, she was there with my friend and her son.

She hardly fussed at all except when we tried to take her sponge bob balloon away. :)

She did great when we handed her to Trent but after a few minutes reached for me again.

The van ride back to the hotel was too funny.  She talked up a storm and was happy to flash those precious dimples.  Our guide said she had never seen a baby talk that much.

Her color and respiratory rate look great.  I am super encouraged and enjoying watching her bond with her sister.

Congratulations on your newest treasure! Love seeing all the pictures. What a gift she has been given now that she's been grafted into the Henderson family tree! You all are in our prayers as you make the trek home and begin a new season. (:-D)
