Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar will be adding a newest member in their huge family as the couple is set to adopt their 20th child soon.
The "19 Kids and Counting" parents are taking in the son of Rachel Hutchins (Michelle's niece) as she is not capable anymore of raising her child. Legal documents reveal that the couple has been granted momentarily custody of the child after Hutchins was found to be "unemployed, homeless and had problems with the law.”
In Touch Weekly reported that Jim and Michelle were accorded with temporary guardianship of an 8 – year – old boy whose name and photo are not released as the reality tv stars intend to keep the kid away from the limelight for utmost privacy.
Having noted their desire for the security and confidentiality of the young boy, we cannot expect a glimpse of him. Not even on "Jill & Jessa: Counting On."
The Duggars are scheduled to return in court on November to process the permanent guardianship. In fact, Rachel already gave her consent to the Duggars via signed documents.
“She gave up custody of her son [in August 2015] to her mother, Michelle’s sister Carolyn. But in July, Carolyn suffered a stroke,” a source said.
The Duggar clan may have hit another remarkable milestone in their family life but is their growing unit not giving them burdens?
Morning News USA reported that the Duggar family has been pleading for financial assistance from their followers following the end of their popular series. TLC cancelled the show last year after Josh Duggar’s confession of molesting 5 young girls that include her two sisters.
Indeed it is a challenge to raise 20 children. Jim and Michelle may have resorted to seeking financial aid for the sake of their children but that does not make them less of being responsible parentals.
“19 Kids And Counting” nabbed the title of TLC’s most popular show courtesy of the relevant values that the family upholds especially their strong faith.
