With her sister Jill already sporting a baby bump, Jessa Duggar Seewald has opened up to share her plans with her husband, Ben, to adopt. “We hope to adopt a lot of kids,” said Jessa. “If God blesses us with biological children of our own, it’s not going to quench our desire to adopt.”

Although they want a lot of children, the couple is giving themselves two years before they begin to expand their family. This is a huge difference from the stance her Duggar parents and siblings have taken. Waiting to start their family is a bit unique for the Duggar family. But it comes as no surprise to fans of Jessa. She’s always stood apart from the rest.
