The Duggars Lose a Child…

I just got done watching what has been the saddest episode of 19 Kids and Counting. It was where they found out that Michelle had lost their 20th child at only about 17 weeks of her being pregnant. Tons of people criticize the Duggars for having the large family that they do and wonder why they still continue to have more after their 19th child was born 10 weeks early. I can’t imagine what losing their 20th child was like. I had tears through most of the episode. It just makes me appreciate life so much more I guess. I’ve read some blogs about people who have lost their children before they were born or 1 year old and I just can’t imagine having to go through that. It has to be one of the hardest things in life to go through. And to be honest, it kind of makes me scared for when me and my fiancĂ© start having kids in a few years because you never know what’s going to happen in life. But that being said, you can’t dwell on the “what if’s” in life. What happens, happens, and I believe it happens for a reason. So what are your thoughts on this? Leave me a comment!

  1. Definitely makes me sad to imagine losing a baby or even miscarrying. But I do think, in the case of the Duggars, you have to responsible of both your body and your emotions and realize the sad, but not unpredictable consequences of putting yourself in high risk situations. Still, I feel very sorry for their loss. Not an easy thing to go through no matter how many children you have.
