addChild or maybe swapChildren question

So I’ve loaded an image into a movieclip that spans across two frames. When I tell the containing movieclip to gotoAndStop(2) the image disappears. Shouldn’t it still be there since the movieclip I’m loading it into spans both frames?

var loader:Loader = new Loader();
loader.load(new URLRequest(filename));  
loader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, onLoadImageIntoContainer);

function onLoadImageIntoContainer(evt:Event):void {
    card_container_mc.photo_container_mc.addChild(;, onLoadImageIntoContainer);

Then if I do card_container_mc.gotoAndStop(2); the image disappears. Remember that the movieclip “photo_container_mc” spans two frames inside of “card_container_mc”.
