Mama Duggar Admits They May Adopt Baby Number 20!
With their third grandchild on the way, it’s no surprise that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have babies on the brain!
The proud parents of 19 revealed their plans to expand their brood even more, and the duo are considering adoption! “We are open to the idea of adoption. We are praying about it, and we will see what God has in store. Love for children has been placed on our hearts,” said the matriarch of the bunch, Michelle.
Michelle spoke candidly about the possibility of adoption to People, saying, “The kids are definitely pushing towards wanting us to open our home up to another child or more. They see how much we have been blessed with and how little so many children have and they want to share. We tell our children that would have to be something that is God’s will for our family, and we will see if it is. Our children love children, and we all do.”
Mama also added that they’re not considering adoption as their only option, but the parents are prepared to do whatever is best, saying, “We are open to whatever is in store. It doesn’t really matter whether I would have another child or we would adopt, but we want to approach it with an open heart. We have friends that have adopted children who are a great influence in our lives, and we have talked about their experiences. So it’s something we’ve considered.”
Michelle famously miscarried a daughter in 2010 — and they were planning on naming baby girl Jubilee. When asked about the future, she said, “We have to know for sure that is what God wants for us to do. When he gives us a child [through pregnancy], there is no doubt in our minds that is what He wants, but when it comes to adoption, we would have to know for sure that was His will.”
Whatever course they choose, we wish mom, dad and all their brothers and sisters a safe, healthy and happy pregnancy!
