Duggar Sisters' First Public Outing Since the Scandal: 'We're Not a Perfect Family'
Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and Jill (Duggar) Dillard, both of whom were reportedly molested by their brother Josh Duggar when they were children, have made their first public appearance since news of the scandal broke.
People magazine reports that the sisters traveled with their husbands to the ALIVE Christian music fest in Mineral City, Ohio, to speak on the main stage yesterday, taking part in a Q&A.

During the rain-soaked appearance, Jill told the respectful crowd, "Hey, we're not a perfect family. We mess up. Imagine what life is like with a family with two or three kids and multiply that about 10 times over and that's what you get."
Jessa didn't reveal the gender of the baby she's carrying, but did say she and her husband are already thinking of adopting to enhance their family.
"We've been looking into different options, maybe going through the state or a private adoption agency and that sort of thing."
Josh had been scheduled to attend the same event, but cancelled.
