Jessa and Ben Seewald have always been open about the fact that they have plans to adopt someday. They want a big family, but they won't be having all of the kids on their own. Jessa grew up with 18 siblings, so she is used to having a lot of kids around. Now Us Magazine is sharing Jessa and Ben's big plans for adoption that Jessa shared with them directly. 

When will they adopt?

Ben and Jessa have always wanted to adopt and talked about it before they ever got married. Their son Spurgeon is just five months old, so they can't adopt a baby just yet. Jessa shared that they have a lot of friends who have adopted, so they have seen how amazing it can be.

They had to put their plans on hold when she got pregnant. Now Jessa is sharing and said, "So we want to move forward with paperwork and a home study, and just be ready for however God opens those door." That means that an adoption could come sooner rather than later. Jessa did say on the show that a counselor advised her to wait until her son is nine months old and that would be four months away. If things work out, they could have another child in less than a year.

How many kids will they adopt?

Jessa Duggar shared that it isn't really about how many kids they will adopt. Jessa said, "It’s not really about any specific number, but cherishing and loving the ones God brings to us — whether that be just one, or whether it be more, we’ll be grateful." As you can tell, she said "ones," which shows that Jessa and Ben are not set on just one adoption.

It does sound like they could choose to adopt more than one child if it works out.

Jessa Duggar Seewald has not been shy about the fact that she wants a lot of children someday. They may decide to adopt and have more children of their own. You never know if Jessa will be the next one with 19 kids at her house.
