WATCH Josh Duggar 'Ashley Madison' Scandal Divides Family

It's been more than six months since Josh Duggar entered treatment following a series of scandals, and now his family is trying to rebuild their relationship with the former reality star.

"I definitely have forgiven Josh. It is a process, though, that you have to work through in your heart," Josh's sister, Jessa (Duggar) Seewald, told People in a new interview. "And trust is not quickly rebuilt. It is something that takes a while. We love him very much, though, and we are very hopeful for the future."

Sister Joy Duggar added, "I have forgiven him and I feel that, but the trust is not there."

In August, Josh, 28, admitted that he was addicted to porn and had been "unfaithful" to his wife Anna, with whom he has four children.

Months earlier, he apologized for his "inexcusable" actions after police reports from more than 12 years ago showed that he had inappropriately touched underage girls, including his sisters.

"Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends," Josh wrote on Facebook last May.

"I love Josh and I want the best for him," Jessa's husband Ben Seewald told People recently. "There are a lot of people who have been hurt in this situation. I want to look for ways to help heal the situation for Josh and for Anna and their kids especially."

TLC cancelled the Duggar family's show "19 Kids and Counting" last July after the initial scandal broke. But, beginning March 15, members of the Duggar family will return to television in the first full season of "Jill and Jessa: Counting On."

The show picks up after the original three-part special premiered in December.
