In the photos, Lauren showed off her sonogram picture. The two also held a sign that read, "Rainbow after the storm." In a third pic, Lauren posed with Josiah’s hands around her stomach while a balloon floated in the background. The couple said the balloon was in honor of the child they lost. They even revealed their lost child’s name: Asa.

“As we rejoice of the life of our second sweet baby, we also remember (balloon as symbolism) our other sweet baby, Asa, in heaven. God is so incredibly good!” they finished.

As OK! readers know, Josiah and Lauren revealed in February that they'd suffered a miscarriage in October 2018. Lauren said she was “shattered” by the loss.

Now, they’re looking forward to the future. “God’s faithfulness to us in our most difficult moments has sustained us and brought us such love and comfort,” the couple told Us Weekly. “We cannot begin to tell you how much we are looking forward to holding this baby in our arms this fall. Every good and perfect gift is from above and we are looking forward to this new season of parenting together!”
