Um.. WHAT?! - Duggars Have How Many Kids?

Recommended Posts

Jessica

From the Embassy Institute page for the Duggars... embassyinstitute.org/instructors/duggar

 

"Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are parents of 20 children..."

 

Are they counting the miscarried baby or is this an announcement?

Maybe they were also educated at SOTDRT?

I think it's just an overlooked mistake. Before Josie was born, they were a family of 20, although they had 18 kids, and they did play up that nice, round number a bit. I think it's even a title of one of their books. Through the magic of lazy editors, "family of 20" from a few years ago becomes "parents of 20" without anyone noticing. It probably wasn't even intentional.

As weird as the Duggars are, at least they don't count their miscarriage(s) along with their actual children, the way some fundies do.

Wasn't their book called 20 and Counting? The first one I mean. I think a lot of people see that and assume 20 children. I think this is just a case of lazy copy that wasn't properly edited or fact checked.
