This guest blog is by Victoria Hickok, an adoptive mother.
After four years of unsuccessful attempts at getting pregnant, my husband and I went through fertility treatments for a year.
But shortly after the anniversary of our first fertility treatment Paul and I put our family plans on hold and decided to focus on buying a house in our small town in Georgia instead.
We figured that, unlike starting a family, finding a house was something we could control.
So we decided to wait until we were settled in our new home and then expand our family through adoption.
