Even after a tough week for the hardy Duggars clan, Jim  Bob and wife Michelle are still finding ways to stay positive.

The Duggar parents will be holding a memorial service for their unborn child  on Wednesday, Dec. 14, whom they named, appropriately, Jubilee Shalom  Duggar.

“This is life, and I understand that we are going through something that  many others have,” Jim Bob told  People. “You think about the what-ifs, but God gives us strength to go  on.

“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.”

Following last Thursday’s devastating  news, Michelle felt  lightheaded and was ordered to stay in the hospital for observation, a  family spokesperson told People.

“Our doctor said it was wise to let this miscarriage happen naturally,”  Michelle, 45, said. “And so that is what we are going to do.

“I am resting and I have felt good physically, which is strange.”

In 2009, the family faced another precarious situation when their youngest  daughter Josie was born premature at just 25 weeks.

“She is a miracle baby and all of us, we are so lucky to have her,” Michelle  said at the time.

The couple, who already have 19 biological children between the ages of 2  and 23, have faith that this recent tragedy is not without reason, however.

“As our whole family is grieving, we also know that God promises to work all  things for good in our lives,” Jim Bob wrote in a letter that he shared with  People. “Our prayer is that Jubilee’s passing will help us all realize that this  life is short, and our relationship with Jesus is the most important thing.

“He gives us peace in our hearts as He guides us through whatever we might  face.”

On Thursday, December 7th, Michelle Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting” received the devastating news that their 20th child no longer had a heartbeat, during a routine checkup. In addition to this sad news was the medical complication that meant Michelle would have to miscarry naturally, because the drugs to constrict the uterus wouldn’t work with the scar from her emergency Cesarean.
Whatever you think of the family’s decision to breed an entire city, this is one of the most heart wrenching experiences anyone can go through. Michelle is currently resting at home. She told People “I am resting and I have felt good physically, which is strange.”
The couple suffered a previous miscarriage after the birth of their second child. Michelle was taking oral contraceptives at the time and says it’s part of the decision to stop using them. “We named that baby Caleb even though we didn’t know if it was a boy or  girl because that miscarriage was early,” she says.  “We will name this  child and will know that we will see those children again someday in  heaven.”
Michelle said that her family is taking care of her, including her daughter Jill who is studying to be a midwife. “The kids are mothering me now,” she says. “Jill just brought me some food and they are taking good care of me.” Best wishes Michelle.
