Jill Dillard opens up about a family tragedy

On her Instagram page on Monday morning, Jill reflected on a loss her family endured last year. If you didn’t know, she had a miscarriage last October. It was too early to learn the baby’s gender, so they used a neutral name – River Bliss.

In her post, Jill included a photo she took as she nursed her son, Freddy. Freddy is her rainbow baby. This is a term used to describe babies born after a pregnancy loss.

The former Counting On star wrote:

“As I sit here this morning nursing our little Freddy, covered in spit up and a little sleep deprived, I feel conflicted with feelings of loss and joy…I miss the moments we never had with River, yet I feel so so thankful for where we are this year holding our sweet little newborn & I do not take for granted what a blessing this journey of motherhood is.”
