The 19th child of Michelle and Jim-Bob Duggar, Josie Brooklyn, is home with her family in Tontitown, Ark. after spending nearly six months in a childrens hospital, reports PEOPLE.
Josie was released from the hospital in early June, but was unable to return home as 12 Duggar children had the chicken pox. Mom Michelle and Josie stayed in a rented home near the hospital in Little Rock, Ark. until now. Of being home, Michelle said,
It is good to be home. It is surreal to be here. It was such a long time we were away.”
After arriving prematurely at 25 weeks, weighing only 1lb. 6oz., Josie is now a “chunky” 9 lbs., 1 oz. Michelle added, “She has a double chin now. It is so precious.”
