Do you think pregnancy is a beautiful thing? Do you enjoy being pregnant? Do you love kids? Do you want a big family? Can you imagine being pregnant with your eighteenth child??
An Arkansas woman could answer an enthusiastic YES! to all those questions; she’s having her 18th child – and plans to have more! The Duggar kids planned a big Mother’s Day surprise for their mom this year. But the surprise was on them when Michelle Duggar announced on the TODAY Show that they were soon to welcome an 18th sibling.
Michelle Duggar’s been pregnant for more than 11 years of her life. The children are all home schooled and their names all start with the letter J: Joshua, Jana, John-David, Jessa, Josiah, Jeremiah, Jedidiah, etc. (including their dog, Jasmine!)
Las year, the Discovery Health Channel premeired a new show, “The Dugger Family Album.” You an go to the Discovery Health Website to see YouTube clips of new shows, past shows, and play the new game titled “Name That Duggar.”
They really are an amazing family. They have used an estimated 90,000 diapers to date and do approximately 200 loads of laundry each month. Each one of the kids very learns to play both violin and piano. They share the household chores and have even contributed toward building their own 7,000 sq. foot house together! Despite the size of the family, the Duggars feed their entire brood for less than $2,000 per month and are debt free! That’s what you’d call one big happy, economical family! (You can learn more about how they’ve attained Financial Freedom from the The Dugger Family website.)
Why do they have so many kids?? Visit their website, the answer is stated clearly! “Psalm 127 says, “Lo children are a heritage of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is His reward.” We believe that each child is a special gift from God and we are thankful to Him for each one.“
