Inside The Little Couple's Adoption Journey

"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.

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.
