Jessa and Ben want to adopt children. According to People Magazine, the newlyweds have always wanted a large family, but they have also had a desire to adopt children, not just have their own biologically. While many 19 Kids And Counting fans expected the couple to have baby news by now, the two seem to be really serious about giving orphaned children a better life. Of course, that’s not for everyone, but the idea is selfless, and it is a wonderful experience if people can find a way to do it.
“We hope to adopt a lot of kids. If God blesses us with biological kids of our own, it’s not going to quench our desire to adopt,” Jessa said recently.
Jessa and Ben could adopt soon, and have already started the process. According to Fox News, the couple is currently in the “exploring stages” of adoption. It’s unknown if the two are trying to have a baby right now, or if they are completely focused on adopting first.
As far as their relationship goes, things seems to be going smooth. Although they are still in the early stages, the two are proud to say that they don’t argue. Instead, they take the time to talk things out, which only strengthens their relationship. Having that foundation is great, and it’s certainly a smart way to deal with issues that may arise.
“If we have a hard time and we talk about it, you just love each other so much more afterwards. After a disagreement, I often feel, ‘I have never loved you more than I love you now,'” Jessa explained to People.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, rumors that Jessa and Ben are expecting their first child together have been pretty abundant since they got married. A new promo for 19 Kids And Counting didn’t slow those rumors, either. It all happened when a picture of Jessa and her pregnant sister Jill was posted on the show’s Facebook page with the caption, “new babies.” Since Jill is the only Duggar daughter that is pregnant right now (son Josh and his wife Anna are also expecting), the plural word “babies” seems to suggest that Jessa will have some news to share on the new season of the show which kicked off on Tuesday night.
Do you support Jessa and Ben’s decision to adopt? Do you think they will have their own children as well?
