Duggar cousin Amy King doesn't have kids of her own yet – but she's willing to adopt the 13 Turpin children to give them a better life.

David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were arrested after their 17-year-old daughter escaped the family's Perris, Calif. house of horrors, called 9-1-1 and told police that her 12 brothers and sisters were being held against their will in shackles and chains.

According to reports from People, the 13 kids lack basic life knowledge, such as not knowing how to brush their teeth.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's niece revealed on Twitter that she texted her husband, Dillon King and told him she wanted to suddenly adopt all 13 of the kids.

"I would love to show them true love and have a beautiful life and provide a secure and stable home for them," Amy wrote. "

"God can restore what the devil has stolen," she added with a crying face emoji.

While Amy did not reveal what Dillon's response was to her idea of adding 13 children to their family, she continued to tell fans what she would do for the kids if really given the opportunity to care for them.

"I would get them real counseling and love them so much," she wrote.

The Turpin kids reportedly will be split up in to foster homes. One of the tortured children showed disturbing behavior in school, such as talking to himself, reported.

Amy said she hopes they end up with families willing to help them heal.

"I hope they go to a genuine sweet family who will help them and support healing for their lives," the former 19 Kids and Counting star said.

"I can't believe this world…it seriously breaks my heart," the Duggar cousin concluded.
