Michelle And Jim Bob Duggar Have Planned The Memorial For Baby Jubilee

Mon, December 12, 2011 1:58pm EDT by 28 Comments

The Duggars are hosting a memorial service on Wed. Dec. 14 for the little baby girl they’ve named Jubilee.

19 Kids and Counting stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar tragically suffered the miscarriage of their 20th child, and now they’re holding a memorial service for the little girl that they’ve named Jubilee Shalom Duggar, according to People.

During a routine ultrasound visit, the couple learned the sad news that the baby, who was due in April, no longer had a heartbeat. The doctor advised Michelle, 45, to let the miscarriage occur naturally, and she was taken care of by her family at their home.

Michelle was taken to the hospital on Dec. 11, but a family spokesperson said she’s recovering well.

“We have had many tears today,” said Jim Bob, 46. “This is life, and I understand that we are going though something that many others have. You think about the what-ifs, but God gives us strength to go on. 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.”

Jubilee’s memorial service will be Wednesday, Dec. 14 for friends and family.

“We would like to thank everyone for their prayers, emails and outpouring of love,” Jim Bob wrote in a letter he shared with People. “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.”

I have known the Duggars for a couple of years now, I’m friends with Jessa and Jinger, and I happily support Michelle and Jim Bob’s decision to let God guide them. I am extremely heartbroken for the family and I would never question their love for their children, but I tend to agree now that 19 is enough because as Michelle is getting older, her health is more important than having any more children. I pray for them in this difficult time of mourning.

I am so sorry to hear this news. My thoughts and prayers go to your family at this time.

As for the rest of the people being so negative.. who are you to tell her when to stop having children. Last time I checked your werent in control of her body. If it bothers you so much why are reading the recent news about her.

Seriously what kind of heart do you have saying stuff like that when they are going through a tough time.

My daughter who is 18 and just married- miscarried her first (my first grandchild)baby a few months ago-she was only a couple months and at first we were disappointed that she didn’t wait-but we went crazy in buying things for that baby. My daughter was just heartbroken for weeks-she herself thought it was her fault and wanted to end her life. She is fine now- but every baby is a miracle from God and Jesus. So deeply sorry to hear about the Duggars loss.

Wow amazing how many of you have something negative to say about a family that is not yours!!!! You do not finalcially support or EMOTIONALLY support them for that matter. Their family in no way affects any of you so what is your problem. Their kids, their life, NOT YOURS!! Regardless if they live in the public eye or not. That family lived this way prior to this show and have continued their way of life since. Lets say it like it is, your all jealous and hate what you don’t know. As for the concerns that they do not parent their children, you see 30 minutes slapped together, you don’t live in their house so you have no idea what your talking about. Those kids are smart and well mannered!! Try worrying about your own kids, willing to bet they are horribly misbehaved little gremlins! If your looking for people to fix, try the thousands of drug addicts and criminals who have their kids and hurt them and expose them to a horrible unsafe life. You judge these people, yet you really have no idea what your talking about. A piece of advise, be less concerned with those on tv and go play with your own kids!

If you’ve watched the show or listened to them speak, the older children are responsible for taking care of the younger ones. Michelle actually does very little as far as taking care of the home or the babies – it all falls to the older children, especially the girls. True, it is their choice how many children they have, but it seems like they’re in love with the attention, and like Kate Gosselin, they love the money, trips and things they receive for endorsements on their show. Don’t believe for a minute that each member of that family, regardless of age, isn’t receiving a salary for appearing on the show (even if it goes into an account for them later)along with all the fun things they do. It would be nice if they stopped having new babies and actually picked up and loved on the ones they have!

I hope Michelle is nor reading these negative comments. No one has the right to tell someone what they can or can not do. If its ones belief to let God be in total control, then so be it! Some of these comments are down right mean. And regardless to what we think, she is still a human being and she has feelings…Why put her down because your views dont match. Thats cruel!!! One must answer to God for that. Personally, I would not have as many. But thats me and what I want and what I believe I should do. God Bless the Duggars and I pray comfort through their grieving. I also pray for the ones that don’t understand the path that the Duggars believe God has put them on. Our bodies were designed to heal itself and go on for hundreds of years, so why do people say that our bodies are not designed to have 20 children. God is miraculous and he is a God of no limits!!! Remember, while we are judging others, we have a ton of things going with us that no one agrees with!! Some things God doesnt even agree with. Be gentle and kind..Agree to disagree and speak in love.

You know its a sad situation but they do have WAY TOO Many children but I guess when you are basically getting a free ride and don’t pay for anything you just don’t care and only think about the fame N fortune.

I feel awful that they lost a child, it’s the hardest thing to go through! But I must agree with a lot of what people are saying. While it is their choice on how many babies they have, I can’t help but think that they are in fact selfish. She almost died with Josie, she is getting older, so she needs to consider the fact that the older she gets the more of a risk it is to keep getting pregnant. The reason I think they are selfish is the fact that it is a risk, and what would happen to all of her living children if she died?? You can say “oh she could die tomorrow from something different” yeah, but pregnancy CAN be prevented, and I would think that after almost dying she would quit having babies for the sake of the kids she already has. If they want more kids, adopt! There are millions of kids out there waiting for someone to be their mommy! I think that would be amazing to adopt! They have got to start thinking of their kids!

I don’t think people should be saying mean things about her and the lost baby it’s just wrong and hurtful. But on the other hand I really do think that she should not have more kids her body can’t handle it any more and If they really want more they can adopt there is pleny of kids that need a good home

You guys can call me heartless and what have you, i really don’t care. but i have no sympathy for her after i watched an interview she was in. she stated “i know we overcame a lot with the last baby but i pulled through and i was okay, so i’m ready again” she NEVER ever said how horrible it was what her child went through or anything about her child, what a selfish ***** in my opinion, the only reason anyone could want 20 children is for attention, there is no possible way she can give each child the love and separate devoted attention they deserve, and unfortunately for the older of the children, they are probably sacrificing a lot to help raise their siblings. makes me sick.
of course I am not going to say it’s not hard to lose a child.. I have lost a child..but Its very hard for me to feel sorry for them when they knew they were having issues after the last baby and luckily she pulled through, but to go at it again just seemed to me like a selfish move. There is something about her that says to me she doesn’t ABSOLUTELY love being a mother, she loves the attention she gets from it. Which I think is God finally saying to her, alright enough you’re being stupid now.

you guys are such haters. she LOST her baby, doesn’t matter if it was her first or 50th, it still hurts like hell. this story is about her burying that baby, NOT about how many kids they should or shouldn’t have….

I hope none of you ever have to suffer the pain of losing a baby.

I have suffered thru the pain of losing not one but 3 babies. Dont try to preach to me about how hard it is. You pick up the pieces and move on or you will depressed and unhappy. She should have prepared herself for this. A women over 40 has at least a 50% chance of miscarriage. Most women who have been pregnant have lost a baby. So stfu about how hard it is. We already know. Here is some other info.
A woman’s risk of having a baby with Down syndrome is (1):

At age 25, 1 in 1,250
At age 30, 1 in 1,000
At age 35, 1 in 400
At age 40, 1 in 100
At 45, 1 in 30
At 49, a 1 in 10

The risk of miscarriage increases with age. Studies suggest that about 10 percent of recognized pregnancies for women in their 20s end in miscarriage (1). The risk rises to (1):

About 20 percent at ages 35 to 39
About 35 percent at ages 40 to 44
More than 50 percent by age 45

Seeing as she just lost the baby a week ago and delivered it over the weekend maybe you should shut up and realize she wont be picking up the pieces in just a handful of days. No one cares about statistics right now, that care that a child who was wanted, and loved and cherished passed away before they had a chance to meet her. Everyone should shut about about how many kids they have and blah blah blah. A woman lost a child she wanted, a family is hurting and sad. THAT’S what matters.

While its sad that this happened. Her last child Josie was very ill and barely survived. Where her last child was so ill i figured this one would be very ill. Or wouldnt survive. I feel for them and losing a child is the hardest thing a parent can go through but after michelle almost died after having josie and josie almost died and is very ill alot of medias

i completely agree victoria. Michelle has too many kids. Her last one was premature, with a lot of health problem, and im suprised she made it ( nothing against the baby ). Michelle needs to have herself fixed. She is 45, time to quit bringing kids into this world. She is just being greedy having all these children for her kids to watch. If she was really doing gods will, why doesnt she adopt a few kids that are in need of help? Im surprised she even has to push out her babies and they dont just fall out. Nobody, no matter how rich or godly they are should have that many kids. this world is over populated as it is.

Victoria, how mean can you be. regardless of what we think and believe, we must respect others belief. Be kind and gentle! A life has been lost here and a family is grieving. God never gave us the right to be God!! Believe me when God says ENOUGH he is very powerful to do just that! Agree to disagree. come in love and peace….
