The Duggar dozens

Posted By on Tue, Feb 9, 2010 at 9:07 PM

Now comes some serious discussion from the Duggars about whether there is a time that enough is enough. For them: No.

Though Josie Brooklyn, who was born three months premature on December 10 and weighed only 1 lb. 6 oz., is still in a neonatal intensive care unit, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar feel now is a great time to address their critics in People. "The negatives don't bother us" says Jim Bob, "Our hearts haven't changed."

For those of you who wondered if Josie being born at just 25 weeks would change the Duggars' commitment to not using contraception, the answer is a resounding no. According to People:

[The Duggars] remain committed to their belief that "each child is a gift from God" and are open to having more. Michelle knows how their position is likely to be viewed, particularly following Josie's arrival. "When I say we would love more children, we open ourselves up for attack," she admits.
