Tori Roloff Sends Sweet Message to Joy-Anna Duggar After Miscarriage

by at .

As you may have heard, some extremely heartbreaking news came from the Duggar family last week.

Joy-Anna had a miscarriage at 20 weeks pregnant.

The majority of miscarriages happen in the first trimester, but a couple of weeks ago, Joy and Austin went in for an anatomy scan.

As they explained it on their Instagram page, that's where their doctor told them that the baby's heart was no longer beating.

"Although we don't understand why," they wrote, "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."

Truly Heartbreaking

They said that "We don't grieve as those who have no hope because we trust that we will see this little one again."

The ultrasound that showed the loss of the baby also showed that the baby was a girl, and Joy and Austin named her Annabell Elise.

"Annabell means 'God has favored me,' and Elise means 'God satisfies,'" they said.

"What a precious thing to know that when our daughter opened her eyes, the first thing she saw was the face of Jesus."

They also asked their followers to "Please pray for continued healing, not only physically but for our hearts as well."

It's just an unimaginably tragic situation, right?

Because the miscarriage happened so late in the pregnancy, Joy had to deliver the baby stillborn, which had to have been just devastating.

In the pictures she shared after that delivery, the pain is evident on her face.

Saying Goodbye to Their Baby

Luckily, she has such a large family to support her through this as best they can.

Her mother, Michelle, and sister Jill were there with her in those photos, and other family members have been very vocal about paying their respects.

On Joy and Austin's Instagram post, Jessa wrote "We love y'all so much and we grieve with you over this loss. I love the name you chose and the meaning behind it."

"Annabell Elise will forever be in our hearts."

Anna told them that she was "heartbroken" about what had happened, and that "We are so thankful for the joy her life brought and we look forward to seeing Annabell when we see Jesus in heaven."

Jeremy, Jinger's husband, said "We love you and are praying for you. Your trust in the Lord throughout these days has inspired me to know God more intimately."

He expressed a very similar sentiment to Anna's with "I look forward to meeting Annabell Elise with you in heaven."

But family members weren't the only ones offering their condolences.

Tori Roloff took some time to reach out to Joy and Austin, too.

On Instagram, Tori wrote "Austin and Joy my heart just absolutely breaks for you two. I am so sorry. You are in my prayers."

She added "How blessed she is that she gets to be with Jesus and she gets to call you two mom and dad."

It's so kind of Tori to leave a message like this, especially when many people in her position may prefer to not even think about such heartbreak -- remember, she's pregnant right now.

Hopefully Joy and Austin saw her comment, and all of the other sweet comments about this tragedy.

It would probably do them some good to see that, no matter how awful they're surely feeling right now, they've got tons of love and support from all kinds of people out there.
