On Thursday evening, Derick and Jill uploaded a new post on their family blog. They began their statement, writing, “Today was difficult for our family.”

They went on to talk about how they are thankful for those who ensure those who are guilty are held accountable for their actions. The Dillards also included some scripture verses that are relevant to the situation. Then, they wrote:

“Josh’s actions have rippled far beyond the epicenter of the offense itself.  Children have scars, but his family is also suffering the fallout of his actions.  Our hearts are sensitive to the pains Josh’s wife, Anna, and their seven children have already endured and will continue to process in the future.  This trial has felt more like a funeral than anything else.  Josh’s family has a long road ahead.  We stand with them, we are praying for them, and we will seek to support them however we can during this dark time.”

Now, after Josh’s guilty verdict, Anna is alone with her seven children, including a new baby. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have also issued a statement.
