You know you’re a #DuggarMom when your kids eat cucumbers faster than you can prepare them! I’m so thankful for the 5 beautiful children God has given us (+1 in heaven!). Jim Bob & Michelle have 10 grandchildren and 2 more on the way. On Joshua’s side of the family I’m mommy to 1/2 of the grandchildren so far…and the only grand-daughters! #FunFactFriday @duggarfam
She went on to give thanks, writing, “I’m so thankful for the 5 beautiful children God has given us (+1 in heaven!)”
Anna had spoken with Meredith Vieira at the time of her miscarriage opening up about the tragedy.
“It was very hard to go through the excitement of finding out we were expecting a little one and then losing it,” she told Vieira in 2010.
The couple relied on their faith more than ever before during the heartbreak of losing a child.
“One thing that really helped was thanking God, thanking him in the good times and thanking him when things don’t go the way we expected them to.”

“If you thank God it really, really releases you and helps you to be able to go on with life.”
After two years of working on their marriage and family, the couple announced in March of last year they were expecting their fifth child.
In a blog post the couple wrote, “For nearly the last two years, we have quietly worked to save our marriage, focus on our children, and rebuild our lives together as a family. Doing so is never easy after a breach of trust.”
The couple went on to write, “We’ve learned that a life of faith and rebuilding a life together is simply done one day at a time.”
“As we continue our journey as a family and rebuild our lives, we are delighted to share with you that we are expecting a new baby boy later this year. Beauty comes from ashes and we cannot wait to see and kiss the face of this sweet new boy!”
It looks like Anna is able to put the challenging times behind her and give thanks to what is in front of her.
