"The Baby Wait" is a reality docu-series that airs on Logo.

What if you knew your newest addition could suddenly be subtracted? Your bundle of joy no longer yours. Would you name her? Paint her room? Bond with her? From DiGa's Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley, the veteran television producers and MTV executives behind such hits as "Teen Mom," "16 and Pregnant" and "Made," comes a series about the heart-wrenching and emotional process of adoption.

"The Baby Wait" tracks the adoption journey with a primary focus on an agonizing period, unknown to most people but common to many adoptions, where the birth mom has the option to take her child back from the prospective adoptive family. Each episode follows a new case from both the birth mom and adoptive couple's perspective as they struggle with their decisions leading up to and throughout the "waiting period," until finally one or the other family will call the baby theirs. No matter what the outcome, each story is an emotional rollercoaster where compelling real life characters will share their hopes and fears, heartache and joy with us.

The series explores the unique process of open adoption and the real "modern family" that is formed — whether by gay couples, straight couples or single parents. In most states, there's a waiting period where the birth mother can change her mind about giving up her baby. This heartfelt and honest series will be the first-of-its kind, documenting the biological mother's life as she adjusts without the baby she carried for nine months as well as following the adoptive parents who lovingly care for their newborn — while anxiously waiting for the birth mother to make her final decision.

"The Baby Wait" is executive produced by DiGa's Liz Gateley and Tony DiSanto. Mike Powers also serves as executive producer and Brent Zacky and Pamela Post serve as executive producers for Logo.
