Ya! You can try and tie the stem into a crevice or use fishing line or a zip tie..

Personally, I tied my java fern onto a piece of petrified wood (its a rock basically) and it has done fantastic, theres four baby java ferns in just over a month, and the roots are now attched to the rock. I used a piece of cotton string, by the time it rots the roots are in place.

Anubias is one of the easiest plants to grow. It doesn't need much light, and needs very little care. I'd suggest next time you're at a LFS, get a bottle of Seachem Flourish. That's all you'll need if you stick with anubias and javas.

So now that you've moved it, give it time to adjust and grow. Don't move it again, just let it do it's thing. It probably lost leaves because they were rotting from being in the sand. You had it buried pretty deep, it doesn't like that.
