"We have many friends who have walked this road, so we have seen firsthand the amazing power of adoption.


“There are so many kids out there who are longing for the love of a family, and we feel strongly about opening our hearts and our home to welcome them in," she told Us Weekly in May. 


And with the baby due in February, Jessa and Ben are ready to open their hearts to their child number two.
