As adoptive parents know, waiting for their child to come home is a happy – and nerve-racking – time.
For Dr. Jennifer Arnold, 39, and husband Bill Klein, 38, of TLC's The Little Couple, their path to parenthood has included heartbreak as well as joy. Earlier this year, they welcomed son Will home from China. Now, it looks as if they'll be doubly blessed in 2013 – the couple has been given the final approval to travel to India to pick up their new daughter, Zoey.
They share the happy news in an episode of their show airing Tuesday (10 p.m. ET) on TLC. While Will is learning his alphabet, Jen finds out that their final approval from the orphanage in India has come through in an exclusive clip from the episode (see below).
"We are thrilled to pieces that this is actually finally happening," Arnold says. "I think the process has made Bill and I at moments very nervous, anxious, but now I feel like I can actually start to get a little excited."

"Beep! Beep!" It's nap time, but the 3-year-old who needs one is way more excited about making sound effects with his shiny stack of toy cars than closing his eyes. While mom Jennifer Arnold snuggles up, he’s squirming, laughing and driving his cars over his bedspread. Despite this classic adult-kid-sleep struggle, Mom blissfully smiles at her son. "Being a parent," Arnold says, beaming, "is so much better than I expected."
For Arnold and her husband, Bill Klein, stars of TLC's hit reality show The Little Couple, years of longing to be parents are finally over. On March 5 the pair traveled to Beijing to adopt their new son, William Rijin ("golden sun" in Chinese). Like his parents, Will has a form of dwarfism; it had lessened his chances of being adopted. But for Arnold, it was love at first sight: "The moment I saw his picture, I wanted him to be ours."
