House of Horrors UPDATE: Amy Duggar says she hit huge roadblock in adopting tortured Turpin siblings

Reality television star Amy Duggar, who previously expressed interest in adopting the 13 California siblings allegedly tortured by their parents, now says that she’s having “no luck” connecting with them.

Duggar took to Twitter Wednesday to say that she and her husband wanted to meet the siblings, but, she had no way of contacting them. She later fired back against her detractors, assuring everyone that this wasn’t a “publicity stunt” and that she’s “sincere” with her interest in the Turpins’ wellbeing.

She also tweeted, “I know there is no shortage of people who want to help these kids. I hope they will be given to a good home, with proper care and support where they can reach their full potential.”

Days earlier, Amy, the niece of 19 Kids and Counting stars, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, expressed interest in adopting the 13 Turpin siblings. As CrimeOnline previously reported, authorities have accused parents David and Louise Turpin of withholding food, limiting the children’s use of the bathroom, and allowing them to shower only once a year.

Authorities reportedly said the Turpin children, who range in age from 2 to 29, have suffered physical and cognitive impairments due to the years of neglect. Meanwhile, the Perris, California, couple has pleaded not guilty to various charges, including torture, abuse of a dependent adult, child abuse, and false imprisonment.

Amy tweeted Monday, “I would love to show them true love and have a beautiful life and provide a secure and stable home for them.”
