Duggars adoption: 'Duggars Do Asia' inspiration for 20th child

Posted By Kristen Butler, UPI.com   |   March 26, 2013 at 4:43 PM
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar may adopt their 20th child. Michelle, 45, told People "we are praying about it, and we will see what God has in store. Love for children has been placed on our hearts."

The Duggars were moved by a visit to an orphanage in China on their recent trip. The visit to Beijing was filmed for TLC's special "19 Kids & Counting: Duggars Do Asia," which airs Tuesday (9 p.m. ET) on TLC.

"The kids are definitely pushing towards wanting us to open our home up to another child or more," says Michelle. Michele lost what would have been their 20th child to miscarriage in 2011.

"We have friends that have adopted children who are a great influence in our lives, and we have talked about their experiences. So it's something we've considered. We have to know for sure that is what God wants for us to do."
