A Father Prepares to Reunite with His Son
We love updates from our families! Your stories make us smile on a daily basis because you, the ones who are in the trenches, tell it like it is with a huge serving of we would do it all over again if given the chance! It is an added bonus to be able to watch one of our own RainbowKids families flourish and grow right before our eyes on the small screen every Tuesday evening on TLC! Bill Klein and Jennifer Arnold, MD, (aka The Little Couple) are mom and dad to Will and Zoey, both born with skeletal dysplasia and adopted from China and India respectively.
Bill and Jen are now sharing their life story in print. You would be hard pressed to find a negative review on Life is Short (No Pun Intended): Love, Laughter, and Learning to Enjoy Every Moment, their inspiring account of how they met, fell in love, and overcame huge obstacles to become successful professionals and parents . (Of course we are partial to the chapter of their journey to become Will and Zoey's parents through special needs adoption.)
Thank you Bill and Jen for sharing your story, leading by example, and facing the unknowns of special needs adoption with intelligence, determination, humor, practicality, and most importantly unconditional genuine unequivocal love.
