“We moved !! It’s been crazy for a few weeks for us, but we’re finally settling into our new place, ”Jill, 31, wrote in a post on Saturday, June 4, on Dillard family blog.
The former 19-series Kids and Counting star continued, explaining that Derick, 33, after taking the oath of office as a lawyer in Arkansas, was in the process of moving to Oklahoma where he would serve as a prosecutor.
Jill revealed that she and her husband, who are expecting baby number 3 this summer, have also moved into a new house. “In the meantime, we bought a house on the border of Arkansas and Oklahoma (in Siloam Springs), made several renovations and then moved in,” the certified midwife wrote. The new location is about 35 minutes from the city where her parents, Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar, live in Springdale.
The pregnant star included photos before and after, showing how she renovated the kitchen by painting all the cabinets and upgrading to a stainless steel refrigerator. The bedrooms have also been given a fresh coat of paint to remove accent walls in jewel tones.
The Counting On alum continued, adding: “We have settled in the last few weeks and are trying to get everything in order before our little son (still without a name!) arrives next month! We appreciate all the prayers during this crazy and exciting season of transition! ”
The little one will be her third son, she will join the big brothers Israel (7) and Samuel (4).
Although she did not directly mention her brother Josh, 34, and his prison sentence, Jill and Derick have previously commented on how stressful his legal problems are. was in a statement last month. Josh was arrested on bail in April 2021 and was convicted the following December on two counts of possession and receiving of child pornography. He was sentenced to 151 months in federal prison in May.
“The last few weeks and months have been emotionally difficult,” he wrote on the blog. “Yesterday was another difficult day. We are neither happy nor disappointed with the sentence, but we are grateful that it is finally over. The Bible clearly states that God accomplishes justice and vengeance through ruling authorities. Although some believe that Josh should have received a greater punishment, and even less believe that he should have received a milder punishment, God has now avenged his revenge for his unspeakable criminal activities. ”
The statement continued: “So far, he has yet to be held accountable to the extent necessary to bring about a change in his dangerous pattern of behavior. It is unfortunate, but it seems that it may take more than a decade in federal prison, and even more so on parole, for Josh to have any potential for rehabilitation to the point that he can live safely in society again. ”
Before the arrest in 2021. deleted police report from 2006 it was learned that Josh allegedly abused five females. Jill and sister Jessa Seewald (born Duggar) reported in June 2015 as two of his victims.
Jill and Derick added that they hope that Josh “will really be able to start treatment and start working on a lifestyle in which he is less likely to repeat the crime.”
They concluded, “We continue to love Josh and his family and we will be there for them as much as we can.”
