There are some people who might find the gesture touching, while others might find it downright disturbing: In honor of their 20th child, who was discovered stillborn on Dec. 8, the Duggars distributed pics of the baby girl’s corpse at the memorial they held for her on Wednesday in Springdale, Ark.
“There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world,” said the photographs that captured the minuscule hand and feet of Jubilee Shalom Duggar, who was due in April, TMZ reports.
Michelle Duggar, the religious matriarch and reality star of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” miscarried on Dec. 11, which was coincidentally the second birthday of the family’s youngest child Josie Brooklyn, who was born premature at 25 weeks old.
“I feel a great sorrow and grief, and yet at the same time I have a peace in my heart,” said Michelle, 45, at the memorial, via People. “This is so sad, but I have peace. There are people praying for us and angels surrounding our home, and there was peace in the sorrow and the grief. Those feelings are mingled together.”
Hubby Jim Bob Duggar added: “I really believe that God sees the bigger picture. I hope that her short life can encourage other people who have gone through things like this. It was very healing, and we have precious memories.”
