Happy 1st Birthday, Josie Duggar!
Josie Brooklyn Duggar has come a LONG way since she entered the world last December, weighing only 1 pound 6 ounces. From the hour she was born, this miracle baby has captured the hearts of millions. Let's see how far she has come in just 12 months....
Soon after Josie's emergency C-section, the Duggars relocated to Little Rock, where Jim Bob and Michelle had to balance their days (and nights) between Josie and the rest of their kids. Just before she turned four months, the preemie was sent home, only to be rushed back to the NICU a few days later. In June, the Duggars celebrated Josie's second homecoming, and the entire family was reunited in Springdale just in time for July 4th. When we spoke with Michelle several weeks ago, Josie was THRIVING.
These past 12 months have tested the Duggars' faith like no other situation they have ever walked through, but they never stopped trusting in God.
"We definitely are different people on this side of it than we were when we started," explains Michelle. "We're just thankful to be together again."
