Birth of the 19th child of the Duggars
When Josie Duggar was born, Jordyn was less than a year old. She still her mother for her care and feeding, but Michelle was pregnant and later went on to deliver a preterm Josie who needed all her attention. She was with the baby no. 19 in hospital and Jordyn was taken care of by Jessa Duggar.
Later, Jessa too got married and left the Duggar household and Jordyn lost her second mother too.
Fans feel that the Duggar play favorites in rearing their children and Jordyn is the forgotten child. They feel sad for Jordyn and it is clear from the little one’s expressions that she does not like her mother.
Jordyn-Grace Duggar’s last birthday almost forgotten
Last birthday of Jordyn was forgotten by her family and it was overshadowed by the pregnancy news of Joe and Kendra. There was a post on their blog if Josie’ s birthday which is 8 days before that of Jordyn, but for Jordyn, there was none until dinnertime. Her fans wrote on Reddit about it and wished the poor soul a happy birthday.
Jordyn is more of a helping hand for the family and does stuff like launder, serve, and help Michelle.
One angry fan wrote on the social media:
“I feel so sorry for Jordyn. It’s always about serving and helping ‘Mommy’ because that’s the only time she spends with her kids is when they’re helping her, Great, they lifted this straight from Cinderella.”
She had to share her birthday with Josie in the middle of December and a video of her birthday celebrations shows how uncomfortable she was at the function. She does seem to have a tough childhood!
