Please keep Lucille in your prayers. She is the case worker who is teaching our classes. Last week, class was cancelled because she was sick. This week, they have cancelled the next two classes because she had to have surgery. We don't the details but she is doing well, has been discharged from the hospital and is at home.
This does effect the adoption progress slightly but it's the Lord's timing and not ours. And it is rather insignificant next to a friend recuperating from surgery.
We are set to work on the formal application (as opposed to the preliminary application). After that application, we wait for what seems like 'official approval' and then move onto our home study (which is even more 'official' as far as approval). Lots of hoops to jump though but it'll be worth it. Looking at the actual paperwork that commits us to this process has brought on some butterflies, cold feet, anxieties, fears . . . testing.
