Duggar family to hold memorial for baby Jubilee
After suffering a miscarriage of what would have been her 20th child, TLC reality mom Michelle Duggar, along with her family, will hold a memorial service for the baby girl they have named Jubilee Shalom Duggar, People reports. While the Duggar family held a private service in their home on Sunday, the memorial service will be on Wednesday, Dec. 14, two days after Michelle Duggar, who is recovering in the hospital, is expected to arrive home. Jim Bob Duggar stated in a letter to People, “We would like to thank everyone for their prayers, emails and outpouring of love. As our whole family is grieving, we also know that God promises to work all things for good in our lives. Our prayer is that Jubilee’s passing will help us all realize that this life is short, and our relationship with Jesus is the most important thing. He gives us a peace in our hearts as He guides us through whatever we might face.”
The Duggars 19th child, Josie, who was born premature and spent four months in neonatal intensive care early in 2010, turned 2 on Dec. 10.
