Jillian Michaels is a tough trainer with a big heart!
She is in the process of trying to adopt a baby from Congo!
"I'm going to adopt. I can't handle doing that to my body. Also, when you rescue something, it's like rescuing a part of yourself."
Adopting a child is a long process, and Jillian is still in the thick of it:
"My dossier, which is your paperwork portfolio, is in to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. So the paperwork is done, and now it’s just a waiting game. It could be six months, twelve months; it could be two years. Or, it could be tomorrow! They call you and they say, 'Oh, we have your referral,' which is essentially the child they match you up with, and you go overseas and you get him or her."
We think Jillian will be a great mom! And one thing we know for sure — that kid is going to be in kickass shape!
