The members of the entire Duggar family of 19 Kids and Counting fame have come together to show their support and welcome of the new addition to the Duggar family: Jessa Duggar Seewald and Ben Seewald's new baby boy. Everyone, that is, except Josh Duggar, the eldest son of the reality TV show family.
A report from K Drama Stars indicates that the Duggars have all chosen to refocus their energies away from Josh Duggar, who is languishing at a faith-based rehab center in Illinois, and have instead given their attention to the as of yet unnamed baby and the new series Counting On that stars two Duggar sisters, Jessa Seewald and Jill Duggar Dillard. It is understood that none of the family have yet visited Josh who still remains at the rehab facility.
The whole family celebrated their joy over the new addition to the family by tweeting and posting their congratulations over social media, despite the fact that the new mother had a brief scare when after the birth, Duggar matriarch Michelle phoned 911 to help address Jessa's rapid and excessive bleeding.
Prior to the birth, new mother Jessa had voiced her concern that her baby was too big (and may result in complications). Nevertheless, Jessa pushed on with the plan to deliver the baby at home.
The family's excitement is clear over photos of the newborn that were uploaded to the family's blog despite news following that fans were enraged that Jessa and Jill were nearly killed by their home births.
All the excitement must be putting a big hole in Josh Duggar's heart, who is aware of the excitement over the new Duggar developments despite being three months in isolation and far away from his family, especially the children.
It is understood, in a report from the Inquisitr, that Josh was deposited in Rockford on August 25 where he was to voluntarily spend his time at Reformers Unanimous. The boarding facility was designed mostly for drug addicts and alcoholics, though not specifically for sex offenders and people with sexual addictions.
Josh himself is enrolled in a work therapy program where he must focus on up to 50 hours per week on supervised labor while attending Bible studies at 34 hours each week. There are no professional doctors in the addiction recovery program facility.
Josh is part of the School of Discipleship and is free to leave the premises at any time. He is expected to stay there for a minimum of six months, at the cost of USD 7,500.
