Fans have followed as the couple faced fertility and surrogacy challenges, including the heartbreaking moment when their surrogate suffered a miscarriage. Determined to stop at nothing to grow their family, Bill and Jen have decided to pursue international adoption with a focus on finding a child with special needs.
