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.

A Very Special Visitor

Maggie had a very special visitor today.  A friend arranged for  Princess Anna from Frozen to come see her.  Maggie watches Frozen probably 5 nights a week and can even sing parts of Let It Go.  Disney gets them young and it is certainly true in this case.

I wasn't sure how Maggie would respond but I think it is fair to say she was stunned.  Princess Anna was great about giving Maggie room to warm up to her. 

We practiced walking for Princess Anna.

And spent a lot of time reading together.

Eventually she let Anna pick her up.

By the end she was overwhelmed by all of the excitement and started to fall asleep.

It was a sweet visit and we have been saying "Anna" all day since.
