February 23, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Since first entering the national spotlight, the Duggar family has drawn national attention for their family's Christian values. And now, the next generation is taking up the evangelism mantle. The Duggars' oldest son, Josh, came to Washington, D.C., to become the executive director of the Family Research Council's legislative arm FRC Action.
And last week Jessa and her husband Ben told PEOPLE how much they want to adopt a child:
“We hope to adopt a lot of kids,” Jessa, 22, tells PEOPLE. “If God blesses us with biological kids of our own, it's not going to quench our desire to adopt.”
Adds Ben, 19, “Kids are so important.”
The Seewalds share how they are exploring the adoption process and finding out the details of bringing a child home.
While the full interview can only be seen by subscribers to PEOPLE, the fact that the interview took place at all is an important measure of how the Duggar family is helping create a Culture of Life in America.
Last year, more than 200,000 people signed LifeSiteNews' petition supporting “19 Kids and Counting” and now one of America's most influential pop culture-oriented magazines is giving readers a chance to hear first-hand testimony about the importance of children and the blessings of God.
Adoption is certainly an important part of a Culture of Life — one that tells desperate mothers they can find loving homes for their children, and a culture that allows each child to bring forth his or her own unique talents to our world.
Perhaps most importantly, this interview may help overcome the anti-adoption stigma in America.
