Michelle Duggar admits she and her husband, Jim Bob, felt like failures after they confronted the reality that their then teenage son Josh was molesting four of his sisters -- and a fifth girl -- under their own roof.
Still, when the opportunity came in 2008 to launch their hit show, “19 Kids and Counting,” they did not hesitate to put themselves in the spotlight.
“We had nothing to hide. We’d taken care of all that years before,” said Jim Bob Duggar in Wednesday night’s highly-anticipated interview with Fox’s Megan Kelly.
But at the time of their son’s transgressions, the Duggar mom said, “There was so much grief in our hearts."
"As parents, we felt like failures," she said.
