Could you tell me if the third original special "On the Road With 16 Children" 6/12/06 appears on DVD? I just ordered Season 1 which includes 4 of the 5 original shows. From the ordering info, this was the only special not included. Is it in the DVD and just not listed? (I haven't received it yet so I can't check it) Thank you so much for your terrific website!

Hi Michelle and the Duggar Family, I wanted to say I am so so so sorry about your last pregnancy, but please do not give up. I know that it is difficult. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. I look forward to your newest episode. Best of luck and we will watch as your family grows! Have a great year! HUGs to you all and I honestly wish I could of also had more than one child but I only had one but hes a special, lucky and a miracle child so I don't regret it. He is 17. Have a great week and weekend. Take care and keep going!!! Your doing great!

When Michelle had to find out that precious baby didnt make it there were some jerks that thought it was for the best. Let me tell you if you sre saying it becsuse of the amount of children God has blessed them with they are so wrong. God does things for the good in Him. I lost a baby a 6 weeks and I know God has welcomed this baby along with a grandbaby and one day I will find out if they were girs or boys.

Amanda said...

What about Jhon David I feel lile he is being forgorten I undetstanr why four oldest girls are working on book together but honestly you can't say he dosent have something to share and shouldn't be included simply because he is one of oldest kids at hoke even if its only small excerpt he shouls be included.I'm looking forward to new season in august seeing were jordyn and josie are as they are precious babes they are both a little behing in devolopmemt hopefully they will catch up soon. Jordyan wasnr micro preemie but was preemie I think born 6 weeks before due date if recall right on what michelle said in that episode and we all know josie was tiny bitty micro preemie and both as infants had spent time in hospital. I've noticed Michelle keeps them both pretty close when out and about while givng them some freedom at home so they can grow and stuff even the day jim bob was left in charge of two of the boys and four youngest girls he was constantly checking on were they were they don't want anything to happen to these girls its clear and that's precious they want them with in veiw of at least one old enough person to help at all times. Sorry I got carried away.

I love the Duggar family and what they bring to my life. I look everyday for the show to come on while I am getting ready for work. I am so disappointed to not find them on and instead TLC is running something else that doesn't interest me. I guess I am finding that I get a better start to my day by watching the Duggars and the sweetness they have for each other and their love of The Lord. It's like a daily devotional. We need more wholesome television like theirs. Bless you Duggars!

justine kessner said...

Those Duggar girls are sooo loovveelly!! Why are they not in a relationship?! I mean they seem as lovely on the outside as they are in, and I don't understand why!!

GramieK said...

Hello! I LOVE the Duggar family! I love their wholesomeness, goodness and faith. I truly feel that God meant for you to have the family you have to inspire the rest of us to want to be better and more Christian people. My question is: Will the new episodes in the fall be current? The episodes I have been watching lately have had Josie still as a baby/one year old, etc. Thanks so much for everything!

Lily and Ellie said...

@GramieK

Hi GramieK,

The show is on a break for the summer, so the episodes you are watching are reruns. New episodes will return this fall.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

What happened to the kittens? They had loads in the Duggar house and I was thrilled to see them being properly vetted, planning to have them spayed/neutered, and kept indoors, as is recommended by just about every humane expert and pet protection organization out there.

Talk about a great message! It's simply the responsible thing to do. I realize that it's not common knowledge in some areas since it's relatively new, culturally (meaning arising over the last 70-80 years) that it has been known, but studies show, indoor cats on average live at least twice as long as cats allowed outdoors. Cats only allowed outdoors are lucky to see their 5th birthday. There's no good reason to take a tame, friendly cat and send them out when it's known to be unsafe.

The other Duggars, (Josh, Anna, and company) had also taken in a cat, who they were keeping indoors, or at least that's my understanding, as a companion and a mouse deterrent. Then, on the show the other day, I heard Josh and Anna's daughter repeatedly beg for a kitty. I was heartbroken.

Please, tell me that they didn't break the commitment made whenever you get a pet, to provide a safe home, protection, vet care, and a loving place *in their family* for the lifetime of their pet. The lack of responsibility so many people show when they break their lifetime commitment to their pets is an enormous problem in our country. Shuffling pets from one owner to another, abandoning them outdoors or allowing them to wander off for animal control or volunteer rescue charities to take on creates a strain on an already maxed out system, taking homes and foster care away from other homeless animals. Pets don't just disappear. They die, they suffer with disease, they're torn apart by wild animals, they're killed in shelters, or if they are extremely lucky, they are one of the few who find their way into a rescue program.

Allowing pets to just "wander off", keeping them as so-called "outdoor pets", or giving them away absolutely results in millions (yes, millions) of animals being killed in shelters in our country each year.

Please don't break the hearts of myself and the many other viewers out there who take the welfare of pets seriously. It's bad enough that this is such a widespread tragedy in our country, it's worse to think that the "disposable pet" problem is being perpetuated by celebrities on television, especially television personalities who clearly want to be seen as role models.

is Michelle really pregnant again. I saw a today show clip, but i didnt see any confirmation on this site?

You should add Jessa's courtships to the updates. That is just a suggestion.

Hi Lily and Ellie!

I was on instagram recently and saw a new duggar family account.
It looks as if it is the real duggar family. It says the official account of The Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar family. Do you know if it is the real deal?

Thanks for all your hard work put into this blog. May The Lord be with you :)

I can hardly wait until the new episodes come on tv! Me and my mother have the DVR prerecording all the reruns of "19 And Counting" It blesses us to see a Christian based show on tv. That is rare on tv nowadays. It is a blessing to see them raising their children on the principles of the Bible in God's ways. What a true blessing to watch. I noticed a difference in Michelle's appearance in the beginning introduction of the last show's. She appears to have a baby bump she is trying to hide look's like to me, I hope so, if it be God's will. :)

Hi fellow Duggar fans!

I realized in the beginning episode's that the Duggar girls didn't have their ears pierced. Now it seems as though they do. Have their ears always been pierced and I just haven't noticed? Anyone know when they got their ears pierced and why the change of heart to getting them pierced?

If only more people raised such lovely children this world would be a better place. . They look like they take better care of their children then someone with one or two kids. I wish I had someone to guide me when I was raising children not that I did a bad job , but every young family should watch this show and learn from them . God bless you . I hope this show stays on a long time
