This TV Couple Leaning On Faith After Miscarriage

Josiah Duggar and his wife Lauren are used to sharing positive aspects of their family’s lives on their hit TLC show “Counting On” but now the young couple is sharing the pain of their recent miscarriage.

After a three month engagement, the couple got married last June. Four months later, they lost the baby they were expecting.

“Many of y’all don’t know this, but a couple of months ago we found out we were expecting, however, soon after we miscarried. At first, we kind of wanted to just stay quiet about the news, but knew that since everyone is anticipating for us to announce that were (sic) having a baby, we felt like it was time that we told everyone that our first and only baby is in heaven,” they wrote in an Instagram message. “It is hard to hear when people ask us if we are expecting, when we only recently lost our baby. You can imagine it was devastating to the both of us.”

Josiah,22, and Lauren,19, admitted they were left shattered when their expectations to set up a baby room, hear a heartbeat and feel baby kicking in its mother’s stomach were not met.

Still, they found comfort in the fact that God took their baby to heaven.

“Even though our sweet child is no longer with us, it is such a comfort to know that one day we will get to see our baby in Heaven! To the ones who have gone through this, I know your pain,” the couple wrote. “It’s real and terrible. I just want you to know you don’t have to suffer in pain alone.”

In the midst of the struggle, the pair said they appreciated people praying for them.

“It is not your fault,” they wrote. “We greatly appreciate your prayers as we go through this hard time!”
