Looks like Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s prayers have been answered!
Years after suffering a miscarriage — and admitting they prayed for another child — the couple have taken in another child, as the 19 Kids and Counting stars have been granted temporary custody of an eight-year-old boy, who happens to be the son of Michelle’s niece Rachel Hutchins, 23.

According to court documents obtained exclusively by In Touch, Jim Bob and Michelle are due back in court to make the guardianship permanent.
“There’s a strong hope that once that happens, they will be able to adopt him,” an insider tells In Touch. “They didn’t have to think long about coming to this boy’s rescue. Helping this little angel was an answer to their prayers.”
