The Duggars will hold a memorial service for their baby girl on December 14; they have named her Jubilee Shalom Duggar.
Michelle Duggar has been resting at home under her doctor’s request, who advised she let the miscarriage occur naturally.
Late Sunday night, Michelle was taken to the hospital after she felt lightheaded. She is recovering and reportedly will be home later today, according to a family spokesperson.
Jim Bob Duggar commented, “We have had many tears today. This is life, and I understand that we are going though something that many others have. You think about the what-ifs, but God gives us strength to go on. We won’t be able to see this child’s life and the phases that we’ve seen for our other children, but we know we will see this child in heaven one day. We are thankful for each child, and we are blessed to have the children we have here and the ones we will meet someday in heaven.”
The Duggars held a private service in their home for Jubilee on Sunday; the memorial service will be for Duggar friends and family.
Jim Bob sent this letter to People.com: “We would like to thank everyone for their prayers, emails and outpouring of love. As our whole family is grieving, we also know that God promises to work all things for good in our lives. Our prayer is that Jubilee’s passing will help us all realize that this life is short, and our relationship with Jesus is the most important thing. He gives us a peace in our hearts as He guides us through whatever we might face.”
Their youngest daughter, Josie, turned 2 on December 10.
Our thoughts are with the Duggar family.
