A lot of emails arrive in our inbox every day, as you might imagine. We're not able to respond to all of them, sadly, and besides, we don't know why the bed of your 1993 GMC Sierra squeaks and we apologize in advance for not looking at your blog chronicling the hottest auto trends of Belarus. That said, we do respond to as many as possible, and we appreciate all of your tips. Every now and then, we receive very special emails that we take to heart and help out in any way we can. One such electronic letter arrived the other day from an Autoblog reader named Josh.
Josh says that he's a fanatical reader of the site (never hurts...), the owner of a 2005 Chevrolet Corvette and he even works for General Motors in Flint, Michigan. Josh is also a man looking to adopt a child with his wife, Wendy. The couple has gone through the process of applying for an adoption, passed with flying colors and now have been told they must simply wait.
Well, they've been waiting... and waiting, with no calls from the adoption authorities. Rather than dismiss the process or wait for years, the two have taken to marketing themselves. First, they printed up t-shirts and business cards. Now, Josh and Wendy have decided to go even bigger – as in billboard big. Alongside Michigan's Interstate 75 in Grand Blanc, you might see their smiling faces as well as a phone number to call and get in touch with them. The billboard in question looks like the one above (okay, so we've taken the CBS Outdoor art and touched it up a bit so you can see the information a bit more clearly).
It's a sad state of affairs when an approved and eager couple aren't able to find a baby waiting to go to real home. Their extraordinary promotion efforts says a lot about how much Josh and Wendy are eager to raise a bundle of joy, and we wish them luck. It's not just Autoblog trying to lend a helping hand, CNN caught up with Josh and Wendy and you can view the clip after the jump.
