Amy King’s Open Letter To Anna Duggar
An unmetered post
Josh Duggar’s cousin Amy has written a public letter to his wife, Anna. I’m posting it in it’s entirety below because it matters, and it might just help you.
“Anna, I feel for you. No woman wants to be in your shoes. You’re faced with an impossible decision and you’re being surrounded by the wrong kind of support.
You’ve been taught since you were a child that marriage is forever and you prayed for God to send you a partner. You’ve constructed a life and a family with him. You didn’t choose any of this, and your kids certainly didn’t either. I’m not coming after you with some sort of tough love thing. This is what’s simply on my heart and I can’t help but to express it.
I cried as I read the letter your own father wrote in support of your husband this week. It’s no wonder you’re struggling to know what to do to protect your own kids… you’ve obviously never had an example there. That’s awful and I’m so sorry for that.
But my Mom was a fierce protector and so am I. She showed me how to stand up and speak up . If no one else in your life is saying it, I need you to understand that there is no shame in divorcing Josh.
Someday your kids will be old enough to understand what kind of guy their father really is. You can’t protect them from the truth for forever!
I’m saying all of this publicly so that when they do grow up, they will also know that they had family members shouting from the rooftops that they were worth protecting all along. Your children look up to you so much… Please be the role model they need in their life. Dillon and I are more than willing to help you.
Josh has chosen how history will remember him. By staying and supporting him you’re allowing him to choose that for you, too. And I know standing up to all of this seems impossible now, but as a Mama, your instinct to protect your kids always has to be stronger than your fear.
The only people you would upset by leaving are the ones willing to sacrifice you and your children’s safety to protect Josh and his secrets.
- From a Mama who won’t turn a blind eye”
