20 Kids And Counting? Duggars Consider Adoption

March 27, 2013 07:43 AM by Stephanie Gustafson

19 kids apparently is not enough for the Duggar family, for the stars of 19 Kids And Counting are thinking about adopting a 20th child. At least this approach to family expansion wouldn’t force Michelle through another pregnancy. What prompted this sudden interest in adoption?

The Duggars just can’t get enough children in their brood! A new Duggar could be arriving on the scene in the near future, but this child would not be biologically related to Jim Bob and Michelle. Instead, the famous family is thinking of adopting! Michelle recently confirmed the rumors, not offering any concrete plans but telling People Magazine, “We are open to the idea of adoption.”

Adoption first came up as a possibility for the Duggar family during a recent trip to China. While visiting an orphanage abroad, Jim Bob and Michele realized that they could make a positive difference in the world by opening up their home to an orphan.

So, what will be the deciding factor in the debate over whether or not to adopt? If you know anything about the Duggars, you already know that they’ll base it all on faith. Michelle explained, “We are praying about it, and we will see what God has in store. Love for children has been placed on our hearts…We tell our children that would have to be something that is God’s will for our family, and we will see if it is. Our children love children, and we all do.”

Of course, the kids always love making an extra addition to the family, so they’re pretty excited at the prospect of their parents adopting a child. And hey, a new addition to the family would certainly be cause to continue to film the Duggars lives for reality television. Get ready for 20 Kids And Counting!

    Rather than adopt a child from a foreign country, the Duggars, who are probably firmly against abortion, should think of adopting an American infant from a woman who was talked out of abortion by the Right to Life-”ers and has no means or no desire to care for a baby.

    I think that the Duggars are “kid hoarders”.

    I absolutely agree with Judie McEwen, Judy, and Just sayin’!
    I would also like to ask how many Right to Life folks have actually adopted children….probably not many. Its always easier to tell other people what to do.

    I wish everyone would stop hating on the Duggars.

    Ok, so none of us want 20+ kids. That’s fine. But the Duggars DO. And you gotta admit they treat their kids very well. The Duggar children are all clean and well dressed, well fed, well spoken, and well educated. They are bright and happy children. If Jimbob and Michelle can support them and assure them a happy, healthy childhood and a good start in life, then what is everyone so mad about?

    Some people devote their lives to careers. Some people devote their lives to religion, or politics, or money, or building huts for destitute villagers in Africa. Well, the Duggars have chosen to devote their lives to children. To raising happy, healthy, emotionally well-balanced children. As long as the kids are taken care of, I don’t see a problem.

    People who can adopt children really need to think about adopting children from this country. Can you imagine how these children in this country must fill when you have all these celebrities going to other countries to adopt children.

    I think these people are not better than the Kardashians and all their craziness except they aren’t as immoral but just about as trashy. Stop hoarding children and stop reproducing. God finally said enough and stopped letting them reproduce. Good grief.
