Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar Name Late, Unborn Daughter; Memorial Planned For Wednesday

by at . Comments

After the miscarriage of their 20th child last week, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar announced that they will hold a memorial service on Wednesday, December 14.

They've also given the baby girl a name: Jubilee Shalom Duggar.

The stars of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting discovered at a routine ultrasound that the child, due next April, no longer had a heartbeat and Michelle had miscarried.

"We have had many tears today," says Jim Bob Duggar, 46. "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 we've seen for our other children."

"But we will see this child in heaven one day. We are thankful, and we are blessed to have the children we have here and the ones we will meet someday."

Jim Bob says they are grateful for the health of youngest daughter, Josie, who turned 2 on December 10, and who has endured serious health problems.

Jubilee Duggar's memorial service will be for their friends and the Duggar family members, who already held a private service in their home late Sunday.

Should the Duggars try again for baby #20?

Lmfao @Carol its Classes and not Glasses. Yet you think I'm the one who needs classes!!!!
BTW I don't have any kids yet and that's because I'm devoted to my job. Yeah if you wanna know who I am you should watch the ABC/Family channel. I made it quite well for myself. So I really don't need your tax money. I'm not a bad person I'm simply stating facts and if that hurts you, well than I guess that's your own shit cuz I don't give a damn. Let's face it. Your jealous just like almost every other bitch on this site. There aint nothing wrong with my english but I'm guessing there's probably something wrong with your brain. Oh and next time I suggest don't comment if your going to use my comment. It just make you look retarded!!!!

@Jane @Carol I agree with both of you. @Riley, I guess it's time to feed the bottomdweller. You can't be a bitch because that would insult female dogs everywhere. You know your bible well, yet don't use it when commenting. You thank God that a baby has died. We should rejoice because we can see our baby in heaven? Spoken like a person who has never lost a child. According to your beliefs, there would never be funerals. Just wait and we can see all our loved ones when we arrive in heaven. Riley your moral compass needs adjusting and perhaps some volunteering at the Walk to Remember will correct your skewed vision. Jane, no baby should be taken from us. Mourning is part of the process. We will never forget our little angels.

@ Jane, I thought that I was the only one who noticed! Yes, Riley has missed a few grammar glasses, if she EVER went to one at all! Makes you wonder WHAT level of education that she achieved-probably got herself knocked up at an early age, and we're (the taxpayers of this country) the ones supporting herself and her kids with several baby daddies (assuming she knows who the daddies are)! ANYONE who is GLAD that a innocent baby died is EVIL beyond words! tHAT IS, WITHOUT A DOUBT, ONE OF THE MOST CRUEL THINGS I HAVE EVER HEARD SOMEONE SAY TO ANOTHER PARENT WHO HAS LOST A CHILD! And its uncalled for! The Duggar children, I can say with certainty, will ALL be decent, law-abiding, tax-paying members of society; can we say the same for your brats, Riley? They'll probably THRIVE in a prison someday!

Yeah I actually did say that I'm glad God took you kid away and you know what I'm actually happy with my comment.
Because from your comments I can tell you a slutty bitch. What's the use of having kids but none of them know who their dads are??? Your useless curses yeah it doesn't harm me so you can take it and shove it up the same place your kid would have came out from!!!!!

@Jane.... I am sorry for your loss. Michelle having 19 children is wonderful. This make 2 losses for her and you know they are reflecting on both losses.

Avatar

@Riley...you just said thank God a baby died, but I am a bitch? I will just chalk this up to an ignorant piece of shit who is unable to feel empathy (look it up, asswipe) not being able to keep their assinine opinions to themselves. I hope one day you feel the pain of losing a child, if anyone is stupid enough to procreate with you.

@Jane praise God you had a miscarriage at least now that kid didn't have to listen to a bitch like you!!!

@Riley...fuck off. Since you are so big on SUGGESTING, here's one for you. I suggest you learn how to compose a grammatically correct sentence that doesn't make you sound like an insensitive, arrogant, moronic asshole with your overinflated head up your ass.

I love the name she chose. She stayed true to herself by using a "J" name. Michelle probably did the burial for closure, not only for herself, but the family. I know that some mother's that have a loss want the full burial, but others do not want any kind of burial. It really is a personal choice and to each their own.
