Happy Birthday, Josie Duggar! Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's daughter — who was born premature — has been referred to as their "miracle baby" over the years, and now she's celebrating her eighth birthday.
Over the weekend, the Duggar Family Official Facebook page shared a sweet photo of their youngest child and wrote, "Happy birthday to our precious Josie Brooklyn! We love you, sweet girl! Your smile can light up a room and your laugh is absolutely contagious!! You are such a joy to have as a sister, daughter, cousin, and aunt. We are so thankful for you!!" Unfortunately, not everyone felt like she was given a proper tribute.
Happy birthday to our precious Josie Brooklyn! We love you, sweet girl! Your smile can light up a room and your laugh is…
"Josie is eight years old and officially no more special than any of her replaceable, boilerplate siblings to Jim Bob and Michelle," one person commented. "They don’t even talk about what a miracle she is anymore."
Inquisitr pointed out that her message was pretty generic, especially in comparison to the one she received from her parents in 2015. "Happy 6th Birthday Josie!" the post at the time read. "We love you so much! From 1-pound-6-ounces to now. We are so grateful to God that He has brought you this far! Your enthusiasm for life and love and sensitivity to God and others is such a joy and encouragement to our lives! We look forward to what God has in store for your life Josie! May your favorite passage of scripture Psalm 1 be true in your life!" Hmm, they do sound slightly different. Put a little thought into it next time, fam!
