    Lose source when exported to jpeg then deleted.


      I'm a new Lightroom user.  Please excuse me if this is a dumb question, but I've been Googling the problem with no clear answer.  I had a group of photos that I exported in jpeg format to my desktop.  Once I was done with them I deleted the exported jpegs.  Now I've gone back into my Lightroom folder that has the dng files and they all say Photo is Missing.  Doesn't exporting mean you are creating a copy independent of the originals?  How do I fix this now that I don't have the exported jpegs anymore?
