The Duggars

I just heard today that Michelle Duggar lost her baby, and my heart broke for her.  I read the article and a few of the comments left by people.  Quite a few alluded to the idea that it serves her right for having so many kids, and that's just sad to me.

Regardless of how you feel about their choices on family planning, remember that Michelle is a mother, Jim Bob is a father, those kids are brothers and sisters...and they just lost a special baby that was very loved and wanted.  They are hurting!  Put yourself in their shoes.

Alright, I'm climbing down off my soapbox now.

Amen and amen!!! It doesn't matter that she already has a bunch of kids -- I'm still sure the whole family was attached to that little one. Losing a baby is never easy. I was afraid to read comments because I just knew there would be those that would comment on how many she already has, etc. Thankfully the Duggars have a tight knit family to help insulate them from such unnecessary and hurtful comments. May God give them an extra measure of His love!
