The Duggars have once again ditched their eldest daughter! While many members of the 19 Kids and Counting family recently took off for a missionary trip to El Salvador, Jana was left at home caring for some of her younger siblings.
On Dec. 12, Michelle Duggar posted a Facebook update about the trip, and fans quickly noticed that Jana was missing from the family photos. “Where’s Jana?” they questioned, noting that the 24-year-old hadn’t been on this annual trip in the years prior, either.
It turns out Jana was left behind in Arkansas to care for the four youngest Duggars, Johanna, Jennifer, Jordyn and Josie. Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald didn’t make the trip to El Salvador, but they weren’t around to help out Jana, either. Instead, they headed to Malvern, Arkansas, where they were the Grand Marshals of a holiday parade, and then enjoyed a weekend getaway in Hot Springs.
“While Jessa is being treated like the Homecoming princess, Jana is at home cooking, cleaning and tending to four, active young kids,” an insider gripes. “The Duggars make thousands of dollars per episode. If they have to be gone, they can afford to hire a babysitter now and then to give Jana a break.”
This recent unfair treatment has had fans rallying around Jana and constantly coming to her defense on social media.
