"Our little Indiana is 21 months old today," the description on the video read. "We're going to sleep tonight remembering the morning we welcomed her into the world. We had no idea when we woke up that day what a gift God was about to give us."

PHOTOS: Joey and Rory Feek's Most Heartwarming Family Moments

Joey was first diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in May 2004. Despite multiple treatments, tests and surgeries, her cancer returned.

During this heartbreaking time, Rory has been keeping a blog, and in one of his latest posts, he noted they felt "disappointment" once they learned there was nothing else that could be done to help Joey's dire situation. Joey remains optimistic, he wrote.

"Her friends gathered around her on the couch and she told them of her hope that she might be able to still be here for Christmas, or for Indiana's second birthday in February," he penned. "Joey's hope never fades. No amount of pain or medicine can touch it. It runs too deep. It's connected to her faith in God. And as she will tell you, God can do anything."

In a new interview that was released last week, Joey opened up to The Tennessean about her battle with the disease and what it feels like to be living out her final days.

"I wasn't mad at [God], I wasn't upset," she explained. "I was just greatly disappointed. I really thought we had it. I thought, 'I'm going to be that exception. I'm going to be that statistic that stands out and says, 'She fought it.' We did the most extreme surgery we can do in the gynecologic world, and she did well.' But for whatever reason, it wasn't enough, and God had different plans. I was disappointed. I was exhausted."

"I pray that one morning I just don't wake up," she added. "But I don't fear anything because I'm so close to God and we've talked about it so many times. I know he's close. And I know he loves me. I'm really at peace. I still believe there's healing in prayer."
