Jana Duggar: Has She Cut Off All Contact With Josh Duggar?!

by at .  Updated at .

It's been two years since the Josh Duggar sex scandals shattered the wholesome image his family had worked so hard to cultivate.

They say time heals all wounds, but they don't typically mean molestation, adultery and porn addiction from a man promoting "family values."

It's not surprising that a large segment of the Duggars' fan base has demonstrated a willingness to forgive Josh's egregious crimes.

It's also not surprising that some members of his immediate family might not be as willing to move on as their supporters.

Josh, of course, molested five young girls - four of whom were his sisters - and yet he was able to avoid criminal prosecution.

As a result of intervention from his parents, he skated by with minimal involvement from law enforcement, or treatment.

Remarkably, some of his victims - most notably Jill and Jessa Duggar - have publicly forgiven their older brother.

Others who remember the nightmarish atmosphere of the "Duggar compound" in those days have not been so quick to move on.

Many fans now believe that Jana Duggar, the family's eldest daughter (28), has continued to keep Josh at arm's length.

Even as those around her have been quick to forget his appalling transgressions, Jana has yet to forgive and/or forget.

Unlike her sisters, Jana has not spoken publicly about the scandal, and it is unknown if she was one of Josh's victims.

But as a surrogate mother to her younger siblings, it stands to reason that Jana would continue to be wary of her predatory older brother.

Which brings us to this week and a seemingly harmless video uploaded this week by Josh's long-suffering wife, Anna Duggar.

The clip, which features Josh and Anna's daughter Meredith, seems designed to tug at Jana's heartstrings specifically.

“Do you miss Jana?” Anna asks from off camera.

“She’s far away,” sweet little Meredith responds.

Apparently believing that Jana is on the phone at that moment, Meredith says, “I can’t hear her… Jana, where are you?”

Needless to say, many viewers were moved.

Many Duggar obsessives are wondering if Jana recently cut off contact with Josh, possibly even due to a new transgression.

“She is so sweet that made me cry,” commented one follower.

Wrote another fan equally affected by the brief scene:

“Awww quick FaceTime Jana ... this baby looks too sad!” 

Yes, the comments section quickly erupted with speculation as to why Meredith hasn't seen her favorite aunt in so long.

Many feel that Meredith may be missing Jana because she has estranged herself from Josh and, by necessity, his family.

Of course, that's all speculation, because it would be a compelling story if someone in his inner circle refusde to let Josh off the hook.

It doesn't mean that's what's necessarily happening here, however. 

The Duggars, as fans may know, are currently in Australia, and it seems Jana made the trip along with most of the rest of her family.

In all likelihood, that's why she's MIA, and she'll resume regular contact with Josh and his family upon her return to the U.S.

It's bad news for those who would like to see Josh endure some sort of comeuppance, but good news for little Meredith.

As for Jana's oft-discussed single status?

The mere fact that Jana is still single is notable because in her family, girls are taught from a young age to marry and procreate.

Fast. And hard.

Given that Jana is the oldest, fairest and most single of them all, the Duggar faithful become more restless with each passing year.

The need to believe that Jana is, or will soon be, in a secret courtship that will ultimately bear fruit is consuming the community. 

She's not single for lack of interest. Here's a complete list of all the men Jana has been (erroneously) linked to over the years:
