Martha MacCallum brought us a feel-good story this morning out of Iowa.

Libby and Andy Ortmann, who struggled for years to get pregnant, are now in the process of welcoming 3-week-old Calvin into the family, after posting an adoption message on Facebook.

“Tell everyone you know we want kids. It’s not working. If you know anyone, or if you know anyone who knows anyone in a difficult situation, please tell them about us,” wrote the mom-to-be.

A few months later, a former co-worker reached out saying that her sister was pregnant and wanted to meet the couple.

Now Libby and Andy are getting ready to adopt the newborn – all thanks to the power of social media!
