Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth just shared the news with fans that she had a miscarriage. This was an emotional post on the Instagram that she shares with her husband Austin. One thing about the Duggars is that they don’t hide things from fans and are very open. This is a difficult time, but they are getting a ton of support in the comments.

Today marks one week since we heard these words… . “So this is your baby’s heart (pointing to the ultrasound screen). I don’t hear a heartbeat or see any movement.” . We had gone in for our 20-week ultrasound and gender reveal. It was a baby girl. Although we don’t understand why, God has given us unexplainable peace and comfort during this very difficult time. Yes, it still hurts and we have cried countless tears, but we know that we can trust the Lord. In the words of King David after the loss of his baby, “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me” (2 Sam 12:23). We don’t grieve as those who have no hope because we trust that we will see this little one again. We named her Annabell Elise. Annabell means “God has favored me”, and Elise means “God satisfies”. What a precious thing to know that when our daughter opened her eyes, the first thing she saw was the face of Jesus. Please pray for continued healing, not only physically but for our hearts as well. . “All the way my Savior leads me; What have I to ask beside? Can I doubt His tender mercy, Who through life has been my Guide? Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort, Here by faith in Him to dwell! For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well, For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.” -Fanny Crosby
As you can see, Joy is praying a lot and healing from this time. They already knew that they were having a little girl, so it has to be a bit harder being that far along in her pregnancy and losing her child. She was already halfway done with this pregnancy.
Josiah and Lauren’s miscarriage
Josiah and Lauren Duggar had a miscarriage not long ago. It was difficult for them, but they even filmed about it. They were open with fans and shared details. It is possible that Joy and Austin did the same thing. Now, Lauren and Josiah are expecting another little bundle of joy.
At this time, Joy and Austin already have one little boy. Hopefully, the couple will be blessed with many more children over the years.
Are you shocked that Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth was so open with fans about the news? Share your thoughts in the comments below. At this time, TLC hasn’t shared when another season of Counting On will air, but hopefully, it will be back soon. They just aired a special about when Jessa Seewald gave birth, so there is no reason to think that the show won’t return.
