"Anna is still speaking to [Jim Bob Duggar] and [Michelle Duggar], but a lot of the siblings have distanced themselves," an insider told InTouch Weekly of Josh's parents. "She was upset that some family members decided to speak out against Josh. That broke her heart."

The source explained the family has been "torn apart" ever since Josh was found guilty on two counts of possessing and receiving child pornography following his April arrest. The 19 Kids and Counting alum could face up to 20 years behind bars and $250,000 in fines for each count.

The Counting On alum was reportedly "teary-eyed" when the jury read the verdict and stopped on his way out of the courtroom to tell Anna — who gave birth to the couple's seventh child in November — he "loved" her.

"[Jill Dillard] and her husband [Derick Dillard] are happy that justice was served. [Jinger Duggar Vuolo] called Josh a hypocrite and said that [she was] praying for his soul," the insider reportedly pointed out. "Some of the relationships may be salvageable, but Anna says that’s only because of her faith and the power of forgiveness."

After Josh's Thursday, December 9, conviction, Jill and her husband released a statement, offering their support to Anna and their children. While Jinger maintained she was "thankful to God for exposing Josh's actions," she admitted she was "saddened for Josh’s family, his wife and precious children."

"In the days ahead, we will do all we can to surround our daughter-in-law Anna and their children with love and support," Jim Bob and Michelle said in their own statement. "As parents, we will never stop praying for Joshua, and loving him, as we do all of our children. In each of life’s circumstances, we place our trust in God. He is our source of strength and refuge. Thank you for your prayers."
