Will there be a new addition for Bethenny Frankel just in time for the holidays?
After an unidentified little girl was abandoned at NYC's Port Authority bus station – her mother was later found dead in Connecticut — the Real Housewives star took to Twitter to announce she wanted to adopt the little one.
"How do I adopt this child?" she tweeted, linking to a news article about the young girl.

The 46-year-old seem to be serious about her inquiry, as she later tweeted her lawyer's response to a fan, "Lawyer says once [the girl] is with the state, a private adoption impossible which is now upsetting me more. That is bulls--t."
"There's a misconception that everyone wants an infant," she continued in a separate tweet. "Because of this rule, babies are the only option. Once in [the] system, kids are lost. Sad."
Authorities are currently looking for the girl's father, Elmer Gomez Ruono, whom she said dropped her off at the station. The five-year-old has since been transferred to the Connecticut Department of Children and Families.
