They waited years for this moment. And in the new season of The Little Couple, Dr. Jennifer Arnold and Bill Klein finally get a glimpse of their first child.
In this sneak peek from TLC, the couple meet with an adoption expert, who soon shows them photos of the child they will eventually go on to adopt – a 3-year-old boy named Ben from China who, like them, has a form of dwarfism.
"Oh, he's so cute!" Arnold says as she sees the photos for the first time. "He's a happy guy. He looks so happy."

They have 19 children, two grandchildren and one more on the way, but Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar say that doesn't necessarily mean their family is complete.
"We are open to the idea of adoption," Michelle, 45, tells PEOPLE. "We are praying about it, and we will see what God has in store. Love for children has been placed on our hearts."
The ever-expanding crew – eldest son Josh, 25, and his wife, Anna, 24, just recently announced they are expecting their third child in June – were moved by a visit to an orphanage in China on their recent trip there.

Tough-as-nails trainer Jillian Michaels is returning to NBC's The Biggest Loser when the weight-loss competition returns in January for its 14th season.
The new season will also tackle the problem of childhood obesity, adding contestants between the ages of 13 and 17 who will compete alongside adult contestants, according to reports. But the teens won't face elimination on the show and will not be weighed for the broadcast.
Michael's long-awaited return comes after the fitness guru announced in December 2010 that the show's 11th season would be her last. At the time, she told fans, "I want to take a year off TV and focus on becoming a mommy and doing more charity work."

Adopting a child into an already established family can be challenging. But for Denise Richards, adopting baby Eloise has been a seamless transition, thanks in large part to her daughters Sam and Lola.
"To be honest, I didn't want to involve them that early," she said of her 7- and 8-year-old daughters.
"But when you go through the adoption process you have to do a home study, and they have to talk to [your] children, and I didn't want to talk about it with the girls that early, because it was two years before the adoption came through," she said. "I wanted to keep it private, and in our family. I'm actually glad, because it turned out to be a good thing."

It was love at first sight, says Charlize Theron, for her four-legged best friends and her infant son Jackson, whom she adopted in March.
"It was the most beautiful thing I've ever witnessed," the Oscar winner, 36, tells Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "From the moment this baby came into our home, those two dogs have never been more in love."
Theron happily considers her brood to be her family – no matter what others may think. She calls her dogs "her boys." They are, she says, "Berkley, a terrier mutt, and he's actually the pacifier thief ... He'll just lay there with the [baby's] pacifier in his mouth," and a pit bull named Blue, who help keeps the actress running on schedule.
"People keep saying, 'Oh you're a single mom,' and I'm like, 'Actually, I'm not. I got two boys helping me out.' It's incredible."

On a recent Wednesday evening, Joseph Democko had already clocked a full day as a medical billing clerk. Then his real work began. In the kitchen of his Anaheim, Calif., apartment, he tossed chicken breasts onto a skillet, dumped a packet of freeze-dried potatoes into boiling water and kept a watchful eye on his three boys – Chris, 6, Anthony, 5, and George, 3 – who scooted crazily in and out of the ground-floor flat on Razors. Clearing the table of Spider-Man toys, he set out three plates and juice boxes and called out, "Dinner's ready!"
