- Anna responded to one complimentary comment saying, "Thank you for your kind words. Redemption is a beautiful thing!"
Josh and Anna Duggar, stars on 19 Kids and Counting, recently took a road trip in the Midwest. Their outing included a trip to the Saint Louis Zoo, and Anna shared all about their family day with a series of photos on her Instagram account.
In the photos, Josh and Anna explore the zoo with their children (including one on the way, Anna is expecting their sixth this November). Anna captioned the post: "We enjoyed a visit to the St. Louis Zoo on our way up to Oshkosh, Wisconsin last week! It’s always exciting to see the different animals and the kiddos love it! This time through the zoo we kept a list of the continents the different animals were from — it made for fun trivia the rest of our road trip reading off the names of the different creatures and guessing which continent was their natural habitat! #stlouiszoo#littleduggars"
The simple outing caused quite a stir in the comments. Some commenters brought up Josh's past, writing, "I hope those kids are safe. I wouldn't trust Josh around any of mine" and "Shaking my head..that's all Im gonna say..and to each his own burden.. :-)"
Anna also took time to respond to questions and at least one of the more complimentary comments. The family fan wrote: "I love seeing more pictures with Josh in them! Your family is such a beautiful example of the love of Christ! I know your journey has been hard but it looks to me like you have come through it with grace!" Anna offered, "Thank you for your kind words. Redemption is a beautiful thing!" in reply.
It's been four years since allegations came out that Josh had molested five young girls as a teenager, according to In Touch Weekly's police report. The alleged victims also included some of his sisters. Josh issued a statement, per People, admitting that he "acted inexcusably" as a young teenager.
After telling his parents, he participated in a Christian counseling program that involved "physical work and counseling," according to In Touch Weekly. Josh told the publication, "I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life."
