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.

Girl Time

Ruthie and I took a trip to Dallas this week for her one year follow up since her last elbow surgery.  I really can't say enough about the team at Scottish Rite.  They have been amazing at taking care of my girl.  Whenever we are there, they make us feel like Ruthie is the most important patient in the hospital.   

This was our last appointment for a little while because Ruthie has had all of the procedures that they can offer her and she is doing fantastic.  I am going to miss our regular Dallas check ups, visits to see my aunt Penny, and girl time.

We always make the most of our trips by visiting area museums and restaurants.  This time we went to the Dallas Aquarium, had dinner at a great Chinese restaurant where we had Peking Duck, and caught up with a friend in Grapevine.

I loved how up close and personal Ruthie was able to get with the animals at the Aquarium.  She said several times how awesome it was and she is generally quiet about her opinion.  Clearly, it made quite the impression.

The check up was super, the weather was perfect, and the company was unbeatable.

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...
