Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar Can't Fix This Josh Problem With Baby #20

Well this seems like the worst idea ever. According to reports, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are planning on adding number 20 to their brood. The 19 Kids and Counting stars apparently are looking into adopting another child, but man, maybe they should take a breath and really think about that.


A source revealed to Life & Style that the Duggars are seriously looking into adopting another child. "They've been mulling it over for a long time, and they feel the time is right to get legal advice and get the process underway," the insider said. "They're looking to adopt a child in the New Year."

It was also pointed out that "Michelle says she doesn’t care if they adopt a boy or a girl, or what ethnicity the child is. She says she just wants to help a child's life."

While adoption is wonderful and amazing, is this really the right time for Jim Bob and Michelle to be considering this? Their family has been through a hell of a year, starting last spring when it was revealed that their eldest son, Josh Duggar, had molested four of his young sisters plus an underage babysitter when he was a young teen.

Their TLC show was cancelled shortly after that, and then in August, his name was found in the Ashley Madison hack. He confessed to being unfaithful to his beautiful wife Anna and their four kids, and has been in a long-term treatment facility ever since.

While Michelle obviously isn't one to back down from the challenge another child inevitably adds to a family, maybe her parenting efforts should be concentrated in other areas.

I'm hoping this is just a rumor, because it seems like a terrible idea. If Michelle really wants to have more kids around, she can always invite some of her grandchildren over. In addition to Josh and Anna's four, she also has new grandsons from Jill and Derick Dillard, and Jessa and Ben Seewald.

There's a time and place for everything, and now is not the time for Jim Bob and Michelle to be looking at adoption.
