We only had her for 20 weeks, Life is fragile and precious. So thankful the Lord gave her to us for that short time! She will be in our hearts forever!💝😇 . Thank you all for your love and support! We can feel the prayers!💕 . Thank you, @carlinbates98 for coming to town to be here for me and for doing my hair and makeup for pictures with our little girl!💖
As Joy explained, they lost their daughter at twenty weeks. The couple already has a son. This would have been their second child together. The Duggar family has made it very clear that they love having big families. It wouldn’t be surprising at all if Joy and Austin have several more children in the future.
Carlin Bates is by her side
Carlin Bates was by Joy’s side for all of this. It could not have been easy for Joy to get ready for these pictures during such an emotional time. Carlin was there to do her makeup and hair plus give her emotional support.
Carlin also made a post of her own talking about how hard it was to watch her best friend go through this rough time in her life. The Bates and Duggar families have always been close to each other. There has been speculation over the years that at least one couple would come from these families, but so far it hasn’t happened. Regardless, Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth got the sweetest best friend out of the deal.
