Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald Want To Possibly Adopt Family Member No. 4

Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are “considering” adoption!

“We could wait until all of our kids are grown and gone and then adopt, but I also think it’s kind of cool to have an adopted child growing up with the other kids,” Seewald, 25, revealed to Us Weekly on Wednesday, July 1, while promoting season 11 of Counting On.

“We’re just in a stage of, like, meeting with people who have adopted and getting advice, hearing their stories and seeing what that might look like for us.”

Jessa and Seewald are currently asking adoptive parents: “What avenues did you go through [for] foster care and adoption agencies? Were you adopting local [or] international?’”

The two share Spurgeon, 4, Henry 3, and Ivey, 13 months, and while the pair are in a “good season” with there three kiddos, Duggar admits she still gets “baby fever.”

Jessa went on to explain “We’re not sure if our next baby will be adopted or not, but that’s something that has weighed heavily on our hearts since before we were married.”

And while both she and Seewald would love a “full house,” they don’t exactly want 19 children like parents Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar. “I guess we’re kind of taking it one at a time and we’re thankful for each one,” Jessa told Us.

Jessa said that she cherished growing up with a lot of siblings, calling them her “best friends.” “If one sibling wasn’t getting along with you at that moment, you could find somebody else to play with.”
