Duggar Family Takes Controversial
December 18, 2011 by staff
The family, who lost their 20th child, baby Jubilee Shalom Duggar, in a miscarriage earlier this month, shared photos of the baby fetus in images that were shown at the memorial.
The controversial photos were first posted on Twitter by a family member before quickly making their way around the Internet, according to TMZ.
In them, a set of tiny feet are held between someone’s – presumably Michelle’s – thumb and index finger.
“There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world,” one photo reads.
Hundreds of family members and friends turned out for the service, held Wednesday in Springdale, Ark. Michelle, who knew she would be too emotional to express her thoughts and feelings in front of the overwhelming crowd, instead played a letter she had read and recorded, according to People.
“I feel a great sorrow and grief, and yet at the same time I have a peace in my heart,” the 45-year-old mother said. “This is so sad, but I have peace.
“There are people praying for us and angels surrounding our home, and there was peace in the sorrow and the grief. Those feelings are mingled together.”
The Duggars first learned of the tragedy during a routine checkup Dec. 8 when their doctor couldn’t locate the tiny baby’s heartbeat.
“We had just been talking about baby names last night and they were getting excited about naming a boy or a girl,” Michelle said at the time of breaking the news to her 19 children. “It has been a real sad disappointment.”
