Joey Feek Wants to Be the One to Raise Her Baby & Our Hearts Break

Joey and Rory FeekRory Feek of the country duo Joey + Rory continues to share his family's journey during this extremely difficult time. As his wife spends her final days (Joey has terminal cancer) at home, Rory recently shared an emotional update about Joey Feek that will absolutely leave you in tears.


Taking to his blog, This Life I Live, Rory wrote about a beautiful moment he shared with his wife Joey. While in a sweet embrace, as the two gazed upon the falling snow, a harsh reality began to set in for Joey.

Joey will not be around to help raise the couple's 21-month-old daughter, Indiana, and teach her the things that once gave her joy.

Of course, Joey has come to this heartbreaking realization. She fought her hardest to beat stage-four cervical cancer that, unfortunately, will take her life. But seeing a neighbor's daughter (she's close in age to Indiana) riding a horse was too much for this amazing mother to handle. Needless to say, there were tears (many tears), with Joey looking to her husband as she said, "I want to raise our baby."


This has got to be so hard. My heart goes out to the Feek family, and those who are dealing with similar situations. Difficult doesn't even begin to describe what it must feel like to be a parent -- dealing with a terminal disease -- and doing everything in your power to be with your family, and raise your child.

What does give me joy is how thankful Joey was to see snow in Indiana. Even though it will likely be one of her last, at least it gave her comfort during a time of pain. Joey was so moved by the falling snow that Rory couldn't help but capture the beauty of the couple's home on video.

As Rory writes:

"It was like God was sending light into the darkness she was feeling…"

May your family have more beautiful memories.
