Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar Finally Reveal Little Josie, Their 19th Kid, to the World — “It's a Miracle!”

0128120_Duggar_hospital_544The latest addition to the Duggar clan — seven weeks old — is hanging in there at 2 lbs. 3 oz., but her parents say Josie’s struggle is “the hardest thing we’ve ever been through.”

The tiny, seven-week-old micropreemie born to Jim Bob, 44, and Michelle Duggar, 43, (parents of 18 other children) has finally been revealed to the world, to People magazine, but little Josie Brooklyn is still very “day-to-day.”

Josie now weighs 2 lbs. 3 oz., which is clearly up from her birth weight of 1 lb. 6 oz. on Dec. 10, and is being fed breast milk through a tube. She remains in intensive care at Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock, Ark.

“Years ago, a baby this small wouldn’t have lived an hour,” says Jim Bob, 44. “We are so grateful for the ability to help her.” Here’s hoping she continues to thrive!

These people are creepy – and JimBob is abusive – what a stupid name – it’s my guess she’ll die giving birth trying to please him

That’s one of the most ignorant comments I’ve ever read.

i hope their prayers also include making the right decisions when it comes to expanding their family. this last time around both the mother and infant were placed in harms way due to their human desire to pro-create.
