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!
