The Little Couple has endured an emotional roller coaster in their bid to become parents—and it seems the nerve-racking ride is never going to end!
The latest headache occurs as Dr. Jen Arnold and hubby Bill Klein arrive in India to finalize the adoption of their second child, a 2-year-old girl named Zoey—just as they think it's a done deal, Bill receives a worrying phone call—and you can watch the nail biting drama unfold in an exclusive sneak peek, right here on Popdust.
Their road to parenthood has been fraught to say the least—after Dr. Jen was advised against conceiving a child herself because of medical issues related to her skeletal dysplasia, she and Bill decided to try the surrogacy route, heartbreakingly though that pregnancy ended in a miscarriage.

They then made up their minds to adopt, and after months of interviews, application forms, vetting, wrangling, red tape and nervous anticipation, they finally got to bring home their absolutely adorable son, Will, from China.
But, before the ink was barely dry on Will's adoption papers, Bill and Jen started the process all over again—this time for daughter Zoey.
The couple, who both have dwarfism, decided to use Rainbow Kids for their adoptions—an agency that specializes in placing special needs children from overseas with families in the U.S.—both Will and Zoey have dwarfism, something Jen considered during the adoption process.

“My entire life, even before I met Bill, I always thought, ‘Oh, I’d love to adopt a child who is another little person,’” Dr. Jen said during an episode of The Little Couple. “And Bill and I talked about it after we got married, and I think we both realized we both would like that.”
Meanwhile, you can breathe a sigh of relief, as Bill and Jen shared the happy news on Monday that they have finally completed Zoey's adoption.
"We are thrilled to announce that we've picked up our beautiful daughter, Zoey, from India today," the couple said in a statement. "Our hearts have grown in the past six months as new parents to William, and we are excited and overjoyed to welcome Zoey to our family and watch Will becoming a loving big brother."
