Little Josie Duggar Goes Home!

By JustMommies

It's a very happy time for the Duggar family, as Michelle Duggar was finally able to bring micropreemie daughter Josie home from the hospital!

Michelle tells People magazine that she and husband Jim Bob are thrilled to take their little girl home. "We're grateful for the prayers of thousands. We are so excited, we are running on adrenaline ... we are so encouraged that she is doing so well."

Josie, who is daughter number 19 for the reality star family, weighed in at just 1 lb., 6 oz. when she was born prematurely  in December.

As the family left the Arkansas Children's Hospital, their physician, Dr. Robert Arrington, told the magazine, "This is the first time Josie has seen sunlight."

Due to the fact this child had to be born early or else the mother have a stroke, should be a sign from God that enough is enough. That's jmo though.   ...
