I am looking at this sentence - 'la procédure d'adoption s'est avérée encore plus éprouvante que nous l'avions envisagé' - and wondering why 'envisagé' doesn't agree with the 'l' that comes before it - assuming that pronoun is feminine because it refers back to 'la procédure'...?

Using neuter pronouns le or l' to refer to previously mentioned ideas (French Direct Object Pronouns)
I think that it should "That we had envisaged that IT would"
