The Duggar family had little choice but to make a photo of Jubilee Shalom official after they were tweeted by cousin Amy during the memorial. On Saturday the family released the photo of the tiny hand of Jubilee holding Michelle’s finger as the official photograph. Along with the photo, the Duggar’s uploaded the recording of Michelle’s letter to the baby. While the world is gawking at the loss of Michelle’s 20th child, the Duggars mourn the loss of the 21st. You see the Duggars consider all pregnancies a child and they lost one early in their marriage. They lost that baby very early and was what triggered them to discontinue use of birth control and allow God to decide their family size.

The letter Michelle wrote was recorded for use at Jubilee’s memorial because the grieving mother knew she would never be able to read the letter without breaking down. No wonder! When you listen to the recording you can hear the woman’s heartache. You also hear her true love for her child, in fact for all her children. While she has gotten grief from the public for her family size and just about anything else she does, Michelle reiterates that there was no jealousy over the latest pregnancy and that her children were looking forward to another sibling.

She goes on to say that the entire Duggar family was looking forward to and wanted the newest addition. She says that she has learned to value life more and to enjoy her time with the other children more. She also lists all the things she will miss because Jubilee never took a breath. It is truly uplifting and incredibly sad at the same time.
