Jubilee would have been the 20th child

Michelle Duggar suffered a miscarriage earlier this month, but she and husband Jim Bob won’t let it break their strength as a family, says The New York Daily News.

Michelle said in a recent interview with People that “a big part of the healing process has been taking the time to really recenter themselves and work together to get better.”  Michelle and Jim Bob have 19 children

The couple first learned that their unborn child, named Jubilee Shalom, no longer had a heartbeat on December 8th at a routine check up.

Michelle said her heart broke to tell her other children of the tragic loss, but the family will allow themselves time to heal from their devastation.  “Our calendar is cleared off, and we are going to take time to talk and pray and cry,” she said. “This is going to be a time for our family to just be together.”
