The “7th Heaven” alum took to Instagram
on Thanksgiving, sharing a series of family photos.

bit about the past few months, a little heartache, a miscarriage, and
healing!” she wrote. “Thankful for my wonderful family who fills my

her story in a lengthy Facebook post.
“A few months
back Michael and I were thrilled, we had just found out we were pregnant, and
though we were surprised, we were excited. It didn’t take long before we began
to prepare for a life filled with more little people in it,” she began.
“And much to our surprise, we came to find
out it was twins! After our shock, came acceptance and excitement. A few weeks
later, our new dream of our growing family came crashing down; we had a
miscarriage,” she continued.
“This was a shock. Honestly, my first instinct

surrounded by babies and kids while I was still miscarrying. That was
interesting,” she added.
The actress went on to share how she has began to heal
following the tragic event.
“It has been a few months now, and with time has
come healing, but it took time. It is crazy how quickly you can adopt the idea

and gave me the time to heal but also to show the support was there when I
wanted or needed it,” she wrote.
She also added how grateful she is for her two little ones
that she shares with her hubby.
“We still have dreams of growing our family but
now more than ever, I look at Kenzie, Hutton, and Michael and just feel full.
If we are blessed with more children they will fill us with more love, but for
now, I look at my family, and I am GRATEFUL, BLESSED, and THANKFUL,” she
