Amy Duggar King sends an open letter to her cousin Anna Duggar letting her know there’s no shame in divorcing husband Josh Duggar as an ex 19 children and counting The star is awaiting sentencing on two counts of receiving and possessing child pornography. Sharing a photo of the two hugging on her wedding day, Amy began her lengthy post by assuring Anna, “I feel for you.”

“No woman wants to be in your shoes,” she continued. “You are faced with an impossible decision and you are surrounded by the wrong kind of support. You have been taught since you were a child that marriage is forever and you have prayed for God to send you a partner. You have built a life and a family with him. You didn’t choose any of that, and neither did your children.”

Amy went on to say that she wasn’t “coming after” Anna with “some kind of tough love stuff”, but just wanted to share what was “on [her] heart.” After reading the letter Anna’s father wrote to the court in support of Josh’s lenient sentencing, Amy wrote that she cried, “No wonder you’re struggling to know what do to protect your own children…you obviously never had an example there. It’s awful and I’m really sorry about that.”

The TLC family cousin continued, “One day your kids will be old enough to understand what kind of guy their dad really is. You can’t shield them from the truth forever! I’m saying all this publicly so that when they will grow it, they will also know that their family members were shouting from the rooftops that they deserved protection from the start.”

Amy then appeared to Anna as a mother of seven, offering to help her with anything she would need if she decided to divorce Josh. Amy concluded her letter by saying that she knows that “standing up to all of this seems impossible now, but as a mom your instincts to protect your children must always be stronger than your fear”, adding that “the only people whom you would like to upset by who leave are those willing to sacrifice you and the safety of your children to protect Josh and his secrets.”

Anna has publicly supported Josh in his child sex abuse material trial, writing a letter in May 2022 asking the judge to hand down only the minimum five-year sentence. Josh faces up to 20 years in prison on each charge when he is sentenced on May 25 in federal court for the Western District of Arkansas.
