The Rockford Scanner, the local newspaper in the town where Josh's rehab center Reformers Unanimous is located just two hours west of Chicago, reports that the Duggar family plane flew from Springdale, Arkansas, to Rockford on Christmas Eve, and that Josh's younger brother, John David, was seen exiting the plane and ducking into a white van with an unidentified woman "with wavy hair" upon landing.
Any of the Duggar women, including Josh's wife Anna, could fit that description. Could Anna have left her children on Christmas Eve to spend the holiday with her husband? Or maybe it was mom Michelle? It certainly was not Jessa, who has made no secret of how she feels about her brother's misdeeds.
While Josh is said to have had his ups and downs at the religious-based rehabilitation center, a source told Radar Online that patients in good standing would be allowed visitors over the holidays — although they still do need to follow standard protocol.
"The holidays are a very busy time, with lots of activities," a Reformers Unanimous insider told Radar Online. "Every Friday, they have to attend a meeting, and Christmas will be no exception."
Josh was also rumored to have received visitors at Thanksgiving.
Anna has only recently begun speaking out about the sad situation with her husband, filming a confessional for her sisters-in-law's spinoff show Jill & Jessa: Counting On.
"It was definitely a hard thing, and I think it was such a betrayal for a spouse to go through what we're walking through — and… it was hard," she said. "It was hard to realize that it was such a public thing, so not only was it a betrayal for me, but it was also a betrayal against those who call themselves Christian, because here we were as a Christian couple and everyone was able to see us get married and to vow before God to be loyal to each other. And [then] that loyalty was broken."
Since the program Josh is in lasts approximately six months, the soonest he will be coming home is around February. At least Anna won't have to make a Valentine's Day visit.
