A memorial service was held Wednesday for Jubilee Duggar. Along with words of mourning the family shared photos of the baby Michelle Duggar miscarried earlier in the week.
Photos of Jubilee Shalom, the baby Michelle Duggar miscarried, appeared online just hours after the reality television family held a memorial service in her honor.
One of the black and white photos, shared by gossip site TMZ, shows a pair of incredibly tiny feet held between Michelle Duggar’s fingers. Writing accompanying the image reads, “There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world.”
A second photo shows Jubilee’s entire hand resting on just the tip of her mother’s finger, along with the message, “Michelle holding Jubilee’s hand!”
Rumor has it the photos made their way from being openly shared at the Duggar memorial service to the Internet via Amy Duggar, a relative of the family often featured on the show.
“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.”
Amy Duggar spoke previously about Michelle’s miscarriage of the family’s 20th child, saying, “We know the Lord is in control. We’re very thankful that He has helped us before and we know that He will help us again.”
In regards to the public criticism the Duggar family has faced over their large family size and apparent willingness to ignore concerns for Michelle’s health, Amy commented, “We know that there was a reason for Michelle’s miscarriage. We’re not listening to the criticism. We won’t let it affect how we react to it.”
“I love her more than life itself,” she added of Michelle Duggar. “She needs time to grieve. They need time to hurt as a family.”
