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.

Just A Few More Hours
The big theme (other than incessant travel) has been the air quality. China is experiencing exceptionally poor air quality right now apparently because they have been burning more coal to keep warm. I know, I know, you are thinking "hello it is China! Don't they always have poor air quality?" Well, yes but this is really bad. It is like can't make out the building in front of you, people wearing masks, make your asthma crazy, China admits it's bad!!!
Here is a website I found in my jet lag to help explain it. http://aqicn.org/city/xian/. Now if you will type in Beijing or Maggie's city, Baoji, you will see that the level is at it's highest which is Hazardous! Let's make a comparison. The website says Deer Park Houston near our ship refineries has "good" air quality. That is the worst air some of us will ever see. Unless you visit China today.
Please pray for Maggie that this air quality will not be too hard on her lungs and cause her more trouble breathing.
Next post should be Gotcha Day!!!
