TLC Cancels '19 Kids And Counting' After Josh Duggar Scandal

After send the show in limbo following Josh Duggar's revelations of sexual misconduct, TLC has cancelled '19 Kids and Counting'.

In doing so, the network also announced that it is partnering with child-protection organizations for a campaign to raise awareness about sexual abuse that will begin with a one-hour documentary to air next month.

The documentary will also feature Jill and Jessa Duggar, two of the sisters Josh Duggar touched inappropriately, as well as others who have been affected by abuse.

In a statement, the Duggar family thanked fans:

Years ago, when we were asked to film our first one hour documentary about the logistics of raising 14 children, we felt that it was an opportunity to share with the world that children are a blessing and a gift from God.

We are so thankful for our film crew that has shown up at our house for over a decade. They have become like family to us. They have invested their time and energy into our lives and have been so loving and patient. We love and appreciate them so much!

Over the last several years people have said to us, "We love your show!" We have always responded, "It's not a show, it's our lives!" Our desire in opening our home to the world is to share Bible principles that are the answers for life's problems.

With God's grace and help Josh, our daughters and our entire family overcame a terrible situation, found healing and a way forward. We are so pleased with the wonderful adults they have all become.

It is our prayer that the painful situation our family went through many years ago can point people toward faith in God and help others who also have lived through similar dark situations to find help, hope and healing, as well.

We appreciate the love, support, prayers and kindness extended to us by many of you. You have deeply touched our hearts and encouraged us, during this time.

God's faithfulness and goodness to us, along with His abundant grace have given us strength and joy even in the most difficult days.

We have committed to Him that in all things - difficulties or success, good times or bad - we will purpose to bring Him honor by staying true to our faith and our family.

We look forward to working with TLC on this upcoming special documentary and hope that it is an encouragement to many.

We know Who holds the future and are confident that He will work all things together for good.

We love each of you and look forward to unfolding the future with peace and joy.
