We struggled with this decision as well. I asked our social worker for advice and she she told us to go ahead, thst we had put our lives on hold for too long with infertility treatments. Everything worked out for the best, as we went on a 5 day cruise and then were matched 6 weeks later. It was nice to have that one last trip, just my husband and I. However, had we taken it later, then we may have missed the call b/c our match was a same day one. Since adopting our daughter, I believe that everything happens for a reason, but I also believe that you cannot put your life on hold while you wait.
