  1. Dear Lily and Ellie
    Thanks for updating.

    How many times have the duggars been to El salvador?

    Do Jill and Enia write to each other or do they just visit every now and then?

    Will they be going in 2013?

    Does Jill speak fluent Spanish?

  2. Do the Duggars support Compassion International? I saw the logo on Joseph's shirt. Have they gone to El Salvador recently?

  3. Thank you for posting all those photos of Jill with her friend. I hope that they plan to visit each other this year. Do they keep in touch by writing to each other or does Jill just visit her every year?

    Thanks again for keeping us updated on this wonderful family. May god bless Jill and her friend Enia

  4. Why did the crew go with the Duggars byt they didn't air the episodes. I like the pictures?

    Hi Anonymous,

    TLC aired two episodes of the mission trip ("Duggars Explore Central America" and "Duggars Make a Difference"), but the trip included much more than was shown on TV.

  6. I hope Jill gets to visit her friend again soon.

  7. Lily and Ellie do you know if they came upon an agreement on the adoption process? I know that Jim Bob and Michelle had travel a few years ago with Gil and Kelly Bates to talk about the adoption process but Jim Bob and Michelle had to leave because Josie got sick back at home. So was there ever an agreement or how is the process to adopt? Thanks

  8. Looking at pics of them in a hot climate makes me wonder if the boys ever ask about wearing shorts. Must be a drag in the summer to always wear pants. Maybe they can wear shorts at home in private when the camera crew isn't around? It's one conviction I found rather silly.

  9. who is paying for all the exotic trips. Must cost a lot of money for a family of 19.
