*Quick update: It looks like it will be a few more weeks at least until I can go get Lucy. The embassy is doing a more thorough check before it clears our case. This is actually good for the integrity of the process in general (but bad for me! It hurts my heart to wait!) Please pray for Lucy that she's safe and healthy and feels LOVED, and for me for patience! I cried in front of my students when I heard this news and they were so sweet! Some of their suggestions to cope with the wait: make a list, paint her room, get things washed and ready, write it down so that she knows how much I really wanted her here, and (from a boy) punch something. I think I'll take (most) of these suggestions and try to be as ready as I can so that I can just enjoy her when she gets home!
