Anna Duggar is about to live a very different kind of life. Since word of hubby Josh Duggar's sexual molestations made news a couple of weeks ago, there have been big changes in the lives of all the 19 Kids and Counting family members. Anna Duggar may be impacted by these changes more than anyone else.

Anna Duggar is pregnant with her and Josh Duggar's fourth child. Just over a week before word he had sexually molested five underage girls--four of whom were likely sisters Jana Duggar, Jill Duggar Dillard, Jessa Duggar Seewald, and Jinger Duggar--Josh and Anna Duggar learned they are having another baby girl. A pregnant mom with three small children at home tests even the strongest woman. A pregnant mom with three small children at home, whose husband's devious ways have just been outed by the media is under significant stress.

To top off all this stress, RadarOnline reports that Josh and Anna Duggar are now fleeing their comfortable Washington, D.C. home to live in a foreclosed property he purchased in Siloam Springs, Arkansas--not far from the 19 Kids and Counting household where parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar kept Josh's secrets so many years ago. The property cost $55,000.

Josh and Anna Duggar's new residence is in need of some work, but most of it appears to be cosmetic. The 3,000 square foot abode sits on almost two acres of land. It has several bedrooms that desperately need old carpets ripped up and walls painted. It has two full bathrooms.

Josh Dugger resigned from the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. just a couple of days after word broke of his sexual molestations. It's unclear at this point in time what he will do to fund the renovations at the property he purchased back in January. Perhaps Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, who have prayed away Josh's penchant for molesting young girls, have set aside some money to help him attempt to rebuild his life?

Did Josh and Anna Duggar known back in January when they bought the Arkansas home that his long-kept cover would soon be blown?

Anna Duggar shared a cryptic message about forgiveness just days ahead of the scandal making headlines for the first time.

Might Anna Duggar be deemed an enabler as a result of knowing what Josh Duggar did prior to their marriage? He told both her and her parents of his past 'transgressions' two years before the two wed. Will her new neighbors regard her as a pariah--along with her husband? And what will this mean for Josh and Anna Duggar's children?

Yes, life is about to change significantly for many members of the 19 Kids and Counting family. Hopefully Anna Duggar hasn't underestimated the impact those changes will have on her.
