Josh Duggar has been front and center in the media for the past few weeks, ever since word of his sexual molestation scandal made news. The 19 Kids and Counting star has now returned to social media. Sisters Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald--both of whom admitted to being Josh Duggar's victims--returned to social media just recently themselves.

It was on Monday that Josh Duggar showed back up on social media for the first time in weeks.

He did so to wish his son, Michael, a very happy birthday--via Instagram.

"Happy 4th Birthday Michael James! #Big4 #HappyBirthday #Michael," Josh captioned a photo of his little boy.

Anna Duggar also marked her return to social media with birthday wishes for Michael Duggar as well.

"So glad to be in Arkansas celebrating Michael's 4th birthday--we love you Mikey!" Anna captured her post, that not only served to share birthday wishes, but to establish that she and Josh Duggar have, in fact, completed their move home to Arkansas.

Kate Gosselin's bodyguard, Steve Neild, was on hand for Josh Duggar and his family, as they packed up and moved from Washington, D.C., where Josh worked for the Family Research Council. Following word of his sexual molestation scandal, he resigned from his job, and the family moved to Arkansas, near parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and the home inside which he committed the sexual molestations. They will live in a foreclosed home the couple purchased back in January.

It will be interesting to see if either Josh Duggar or his wife Anna receive any backlash from posting on social media. It could be a very long time before Josh Duggar is revered with anything besides disgust in the media.
