Duggars: We Want More Kids

The Duggar family said Tuesday that they would still like to have more children, despite Michelle Duggar’s recent miscarriage. In their first interview since the miscarriage—and when the controversial photos of the miscarried fetus went public, causing a media firestorm—Michelle Duggar said, “Every child is a blessing from the Lord.” The family’s grief over the miscarriage will be featured in the new season of their reality show, 19 Kids and Counting. A preview clip provided to the Today show featured Jim Bob and Michelle at the doctor’s office for what they thought was a routine ultrasound, but instead they heard that there was no heartbeat. In the clip Michelle is crying and prays, “The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.” Michelle also suffered a miscarriage in her second pregnancy, which inspired the family not to practice family planning and instead have as many kids as possible.
