People.com reported this week that the Duggars are considering adoption after visiting an orphanage in China. They said they were moved by the experience.
“They have 19 children, two grandchildren and one more on the way, but Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar say that doesn’t necessarily mean their family is complete.
” ‘We are open to the idea of adoption,” Michelle, 45, tells PEOPLE. “We are praying about it, and we will see what God has in store. Love for children has been placed on our hearts…’ ”
“The kids are definitely pushing towards wanting us to open our home up to another child or more,” says Michelle. “They see how much we have been blessed with and how little so many children have and they want to share. We tell our children that would have to be something that is God’s will for our family, and we will see if it is. Our children love children, and we all do.”
What do you think: Should the Duggars adopt? Do you think that would be an easy environment for an adopted child to adjust to? (I have no doubt they would be loving but that’s a lot of sisters and brothers to all of a sudden have.)
