Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth and her husband are asking for prayer and reveling in God's peace following a miscarriage earlier this month.

At their 20-week ultrasound, the Forsyth's were anticipating learning the gender of their unborn child. But they also learned that they would not have the chance to see their baby girl grow up.

The couple announced that they had lost their daughter on July 3, 2019 on social media.

"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,' the Forsyth's posted to their account.

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. . “All the way my Savior leads me; What have I to ask beside? Can I doubt His tender mercy, Who through life has been my Guide? Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort, Here by faith in Him to dwell! For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well, For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.” -Fanny Crosby

But the pain and difficulty of losing a child has not been overshadowed by God's love and comfort for the couple.

"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," they wrote.

In their post, the Forsyth's quoted 2 Samuel 12:23, where King David speaks out after losing his own child. "We don’t grieve as those who have no hope because we trust that we will see this little one again," they said.

The pair shared that they had decided to name their daughter Annabell Elise, explaining that Annabell means "God has favoured me," with Elise adding, "God satisfies."

During this time, Joy-Anna and Austin have asked for prayer as they heal. "Please pray for continued healing, not only physically but for our hearts as well.

"So thankful the Lord gave her to us for that short time! She will be in our hearts forever."
