Anna Duggar on Visiting Josh Duggar in Rehab: It Gave Me So Much Hope!

If you watched Jill & Jessa Counting On Season 2 Episode 1 last night, you know that despite the title, the real star of show was Anna Duggar.

Anna Duggar on Jill & Jessa: Counting On

Anna spoke openly about visiting Josh Duggar in rehab, and her speech touched some viewers, while infuriating others.

It was an emotional, divisive scene that could've been lifted word-for-word from some sort of faith-based soap opera.

In short, it was exactly what Duggar fans (and hate-watchers) wanted from Counting On.

"This visit was great because it definitely gives a lot of hope, but also the weight of everything is there and so it definitely drives me deeper to my faith," Anna told the camera.

"God's grace can give me the strength to love Josh when others would say he doesn't deserve it." 

In addition to sharing her thoughts on her damaged relationship, Anna laid the foundation for Josh's return with an impassioned speech to Josh's siblings:

"He loves each one of you guys very much and is just really grateful for a family that's willing to talk straight and to grieve when you've fallen, but also to love and forgive and have hope," Anna said.

These days, Josh is out of rehab and back home in Arkansas.

Anna and the rest of his family have reportedly welcomed him with open arms, so apparently his pleas for forgiveness worked.

Watch Jill & Jessa Counting On online for more unexpectedly poignant moments - and don't worry about any surprise Josh sightings. 

Producers have already assured fans that the disgraced father of four will not appear on the series.
