The Duggars have shared photos of Jubilee Shalom Duggar in memory of the miscarried baby. Reportedly distributed at Jubilee's memorial service on Wednesday, December 14, one of the pictures gives a look at the fetal corpse's tiny feet on the hand of "19 Kids and Counting" star Michelle Duggar.

The artistic shot is accompanied by a message that read, "There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world." Another black-and-white image, in the meantime, captures Michelle holding the tiny hand of baby Jubilee. According to TMZ, both photos were first posted on Twitter by a family member.

Radar Online supported the claim by reporting that the image showing the hand of Jubilee, who weighed 4 oz. and was 6 cm. in length when stillborn on December 11, was put out by cousin Amy Duggar. Along with the picture, she tweeted, "RIP precious Jubilee Shalom Duggar! Can't wait to meet you someday, thank you Lord for giving our family peace."

The Duggars announced that Michelle suffered a miscarriage in the second trimester on December 8. They learned about the tragic news when their doctor was unable to find a heartbeat during a routine check-up to find out the sex of their 20th child.

Patriarch Jim Bob Duggar has since spoken about the lost. "We won't be able to see this child's life and the phases that we've seen for our other children, but we know we will see this child in heaven one day," he said. "We are thankful for each child, and we are blessed to have the children we have here and the ones we will meet someday in heaven."

God Bless you Duggar Family. I too have lost a precious child who lived 7 hours and treasured every second that God gave me with my precious baby boy Ray Josiah. It does not matter how many children you have, you love them all the same. You do not love your children any differently especially based on how old they are, 7 hours old or 27 years old, you just love them all the same. I felt Michelle Duggars pain because that was also my pain. I knew her words before she spoke them because they were also my words. There is a saying that I love so much- ”Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away”. Oh so how my precious Baby Boy Ray took my breath away and I cherished that time that God gave me with him and I too am so grateful that God chose me to be his mom. EVERY child no matter how big or small is a precious GIFT from GOD. God Bless you Duggar family.

I grew up an only child, of my four siblings onnly one has birth/death certificates. I treasure those papers, knowing someday I'll meet them in heaven. No one can dictate how you grieve or celerate a life now lost. Blessings to the Duggar family.

I had really had formed an opinion that it was quite ridiculous to have so many children. After getting to know the Duggar's thru their tv show, my opinion is quite the opposite. I have much respect that they are raising these children to be respectable and good people. They can obviously afford to raise all these children, and have instilled in them a love for our Lord Jesus Christ. The loss of the new baby, Jubilee, may be telling that it is time to stop adding to the family. Since Josie had problems, Michelle may really be past the age to birth a healthy child.

Regardless of what you think of having so many children, the Duggars have the right to have some ritual to work towards closure with this loss. Taking photos of babies who die is normal, even for babies this small...I often do this task myself. What is NOT normal is referring to the wee one as a "fetal corpse"...that is crass and disrespectful and bad form no matter what opinions you might have towards the family. I would use the phrase "baby who died" or "deceased baby". I dont believe that the photos were released as a publicity stunt by the family, there was an attention hog who got hold of them and went to the media and that was not kind. Lets be kind and respectful in how we treat them in this circumstance. The cruelty I read of is reminiscent of the Westboro crowd at military funerals.
