Joy-Anna Duggar who is an American television personality shared the sad news of losing her child in a miscarriage.
The 21-year-old and her husband Austin Forsyth, 25, lost their second child whom they later named Annabell Elise.
She shared the series of pictures of saying the last goodbye to their little angel. Joy went to the Doctor for their 20-week ultrasound and they found out the gender of the baby.
But along with the news of baby’s gender, Doctor also shared heartbreaking news. Joy shared the whole story in an Instagram post along with a picture of herself with husband Austin.
She wrote: ‘’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.’’
