The stars of the hit TLC reality show "19 Kids and Counting" are dealing with the loss of their 20th child in a public and unusual way.
The Duggar family has posted images and a video on their website showing Michelle Duggar holding a tiny hand along with a message.
The mother's message states how much the miscarried child was loved and wanted by the family.
Michelle Duggar was 5 months pregnant when she miscarried what would have been the family's 20th child earlier this month.
They named the child Jubilee Shalom Duggar and held a memorial service for her last week.
The baby's father, Jim Bob Duggar posted this message on their website:
"We won't be able to see this child's life and the phases that we've seen for our other children, but we know we will see this child in heaven one day. We are thankful for each child, and we are blessed to have the children we have here and the ones we will meet someday in heaven."
The Duggars already have nine girls and 10 boys, all of whom have names beginning with the letter J.
They are a devout Christian family who does not believe in birth control and have decided to put the size of their family in God's hands.
The images were too graphic for WNWO to post on our website but if you want to see them visit the Duggar family website.
