Welcome To Plathville: Moriah & Ethan Visit Joshua Plath’s Grave
Welcome To Plathville Season 1 revealed that Joshua died when his mom, Kim ran him over. Not yet two years old, he missed many birthdays. This year, he’d have turned 14. Taking to her Instagram on Thursday, April, 15, Moriah shared a photo that revealed she and Ethan standing at Johsua’s graveside.
Welcome To Plathville Detailed Joshua’s Tragic Death
TLC fans quickly took a dislike to Kim and Barry Plath. The fundamentalists seemed way too strict with their kids. In fact, the parents of the family allowed no sugar, little social life, no technology, and no formal schooling. The eldest daughter, Hosanna didn’t feature in the show. However, Ethan and his wife Olivia did. The other kids that fans met included Micah, Moriah, Lydia, Isaac, Amber, Cassia, and Mercy. Plus, fans heard about their dead sibling, Joshua.
Welcome To Plathville star Ethan probably recollects his little brother Joshua clearly. As he turns 23 this year, he would have been about 10 or 11 years old. Meanwhile. Moriah, going on 20, would have been about seven years old when he died. The death, ruled accidental, happened when Kim lost sight of the toddler and ran him over. Pregnant at the time, she freaked out and went into a terrible depression.
Fans briefly felt sorry for Kim
When they heard the story about Joshua, some Welcome To Plathville fans started feeling sorry for her. Actually, some fans wondered if that’s why she seemed so over-protective of the surviving children. Mind you, their affection for Kim dried up all over again over the way she treated Ethan’s wife Olivia. In season 2, things regressed to the point where Ethan and Oliva remained completely estranged from his parents.
Likewise, fans saw Micah and Moriah leave the family home in Welcome To Plathville, Season 2. Kim and Barry moved off the farm with the remaining children but forbade them unsupervised contact with Ethan and Oliva. This week, although the family seems fragmented, Ethan and Moriah remembered Joshua on what would have been his 14th birthday. Moriah shared a photo of them at the graveside
Moriah’s Boyfriend Max Went With them To The Grave
Although his back was turned to the camera, it looks like Moriah’s boyfriend who fans met in Welcome To Plathville Season 2, accompanied them. Plus, Olivia might have been there, as well. After all, someone took the photo. The caption read, “Happy birthday Joshua. We love and miss you.” The photo doesn’t reveal any other family members. However, it’s possible they visited the grave as well. After all, it seems unlikely that Kim ignores the birth of her lost toddler.
Perhaps Season 3 of the show reveals the younger kids at the grave with their mom and dad.
