Duggar Family News

Duggar Family News, On Dec. 8, the Duggar family of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” were dealt a sad blow – mom Michelle lost what would have been her 20th child to miscarriage. The family held a memorial service for Jubilee Shalom, which featured some controversial pictures that showed Jubilee’s little hands and feet next to her mother’s hands.
Grief experts tell the Los Angeles Times that this decision to deal openly with their loss could help other families who are struggling with miscarriages or the loss of a child.
“Too often miscarriages are largely ignored or swept aside by family and friends who mean well and are trying to soothe the mother and father. The parents, however, are often rocked by a profound sense of loss that follows months or weeks of anticipation — thinking up names, preparing a nursery or wondering whose side of the family will their child will take after. Acknowledging the miscarriage, like the Duggars’ photograph, can often help the healing and grieving process,” the article says.
Counselor Allison Daily says, “There are some people who will say, ‘Oh my gosh, why would she do that,’” in reference to the memorial pictures. But she cautions not to judge them, saying a miscarriage is “one of the hardest, most awful things that can happen to a parent. They have to decide what is right for them.”
