Joy shared the photos on her Instagram and they are super sweet. Here is what she posted.

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.

  2. So very very sorry for the unbearable heartbreaking pain you both are going through. I’m so glad y’all took pictures of you holding her. I can just see Grandma Duggar now – holding her, loving her, and telling her stories about the many wonderful and Christian family members and friends that also love her. God be with you both. I can feel and understand this awful pain you both are going through now because I’ve been there. We lost our daughter 33 1/2 yrs ago.
