Jessa Duggar Already Wants More Kids … But Not All of Them From Ben

Exactly one month after announcing they're pregnant, Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald announced some more exciting news: Even though they got pregnant the old fashioned way, the couple is still actively planning to adopt.


This isn't the first time we've heard the Seewalds talking about adoption -- they've actually been talking about it for a while. It's different this time, though, because they actually making moves to learn about the next steps in the process.

In an interview with People, Jessa and Ben confirmed that adoption is definitely still in the books for them, and said planning on attending a class next month for prospective adoptive parents.

That's awesome news to hear because many couples only consider adoption as a Plan B to natural pregnancy even though it's still so important to find homes for all the children without them.

It doesn't just have to be a substitute for normal pregnancy -- adoption and natural pregnancy can be combined. As long as it's handled tactfully, having a mixed family can be great for everyone involved.

Right now, the Seewalds aren't 100 percent eligible for adoption: The couple will have to wait until Ben turns 21 next May and until they've been married for two years (which will be in November 2016). But adoption is a notoriously long process, so it's good that they start getting informed now!

Do you think adoption is a good move for the Seewalds and Duggars?
