Joy-Anna was expecting a baby girl in November 2019 around the same time as Kendra, Lauren, 20, and Anna, 31. “I thought it was going to be a lot harder being around them because there are three sisters that are due the same time I was,” Joy-Anna told Us Weekly on November 6, 2019.

“Meeting the babies, I feel like that may be hard. But it’s not like I’m upset that I’ve lost my baby. I still am excited for them,” she said. “But you think, ‘What would my baby look like? What would she be like?’”

We are thankful for the precious hours we were able to hold her in our arms and say our goodbyes. We are thankful that God allowed us to be her parents, and we know that her life—though it was brief—has changed our lives forever,” she wrote.
