Several times this year, the Duggars have found themselves mired in scandal.
The initial scandal broke in May, when a 2006 police report revealed that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's eldest son Josh had molested five underage girls as a teen. Two of his sisters, Jill (Duggar) Dillard and Jessa (Duggar) Seewald subsequently stepped forward as two of the victims.
Following the news, TLC officially canceled the family's reality show, 19 Kids and Counting, after nine seasons.
In his statement regarding the molestation scandal, Josh claimed his mistakes were in the past – but three months later, reports revealed that he had signed up for Ashley Madison, a website that facilitates extramarital affairs. On Aug. 20, Josh and his parents broke their silence about the scandal with a statement in which Josh called himself "the biggest hypocrite ever" and confessed to a secret pornography addiction, as well as to cheating on his wife Anna.
Six days later, the Duggars announced Josh had checked himself into rehab.
While Josh and his parents continue to deal with the recent scandals surrounding the family (Jessa previously told PEOPLE, "You just have to keep your focus and trust God"), the rest of the vast brood has largely stayed under the radar.
Here's a quick guide to what we know about the 19 children of Jim Bob, 50, and Michelle, 48.

Amy (Duggar) King sure knows how to party!
Following her romantic country ceremony, the fun-loving Duggar cousin slipped into a slinky satin rose-gold-hued gown and hosted one rager of a reception. And that, she says, was her conservative cousins' cue to exit.
"They left right when the music was starting," Amy tells PEOPLE of ultra-religious former 19 Kids and Counting stars Jim Bob, Michelle and their brood, including daughters Jill and Jessa. "They stayed for two songs or so. It was country so they probably dealt with it."

Jessa (Duggar) Seewald Says Sexual Abuse 'Shouldn't Be a Taboo Subject' on TLC Documentary Breaking the Silence

Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and Jill (Duggar) Dillard appeared on TLC's documentary Breaking the Silence Sunday, seeking education to address the aftermath of the abuse they faced at the hands of brother Josh Duggar more than a decade ago.
The Duggar sisters' mother Michelle also participated in the sexual abuse prevention training seminar given by Darkness to Light, one of the nation's leading organizations for abuse prevention, in the wake of confirmation this past May that Josh, now 27, molested five underage girls when he was still a teenager. (His two sisters came forward as two of the victims during a conversation with Fox News's Megyn Kelly in early June.)
"I was so glad that my girls and I were able to do this together and that we could just be a support and encouragement to each other to be able to gain more information about this important topic," said Michelle, 48.
Jessa, 22, noted, "I feel like this should be a discussion people are having, even regularly. I think that it shouldn't be a taboo subject, that we should be bringing awareness to child sexual abuse and talking about this."
The seminar was especially meaningful for Jessa, who is expecting her first child on Nov. 1, and she said she learned "things I can do to be more aware, things I can do to set up boundaries and safeguards for my child and children, hopefully, in the future."
