After suffering the miscarriage of their 20th child, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar held a memorial service in Arkansas on Wednesday for baby Jubilee Shalom, and family members joined in prayers for the child. Michelle miscarried at five months pregnant, and the couple announced the sad news on December 8th.
The family from TLC’s 19 Kids & Counting shared pictures of the miscarried baby at the service, TMZ reports. One photo shows Jim Bob holding Jubilee’s foot, with the accompanying text, “There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world.” Another image shows Michelle holding Jubilee’s hand.
The pictures were first posted on Twitter by a family member, and later surfaced on a fan site.
At the service, Jim Bob spoke lovingly of the child that they lost, RadarOnline reports.
We won’t be able to see this child’s life and the phases that we’ve seen for our other children, but we know we will see this child in heaven one day. We are thankful for each child, and we are blessed to have the children we have here and the ones we will meet someday in heaven.”
