Being on TV, the Duggars receive hundreds of emails each day, and the past few months, with Josie's birth, they have been sent more than usual. They cannot possibly answer each one, but in the toughest moments, the family has felt so blessed by the encouragement that these messages have brought. "They've meant so much. You will never know" writes Michelle.
She recently told of a day when Josie was still incredibly tiny and had transparent skin. After spending hours at the hospital, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar were exhausted, and the pain they felt brought them to tears. They received an email, which they believe was far from a coincidence. The writer's child had been born weighing 1 pound 6 ounces, just like Josie! At that moment, Jim Bob and Michelle were so encouraged.
The entire Duggar family has been so thankful for the prayers and encouraging words that they have received!
