Over the last several years, fans from around the nation have been keeping up with the lives of the beloved “Duck Dynasty” family. One particular story that has been full of ups and downs has been that of Mia Robertson, one of the youngest cast members that was featured on the show.
Mia Robertson is the only daughter of Jase and Missy. The young girl was born with a cleft lip and palate, causing her to have to undergo several different surgeries throughout her life.
Missy has been extremely open about the struggles that her family has faced as a result of her daughter’s developmental challenges and has recognized that God has walked with their family throughout the entire journey. She has kept a positive outlook, and said that Mia has brought “so much depth to our lives and to our faith, and she has brought so much meaning to what life is about.”
Now, the 14-year-old is preparing for another surgery that will take place this summer. On Wednesday, Missy tweeted an update about the upcoming surgery and asked her followers to please be praying after the doctor revealed some mixed news. The report was not what they were hoping for.
Missy said, “After a long day of doctors’ appointments & travel, we heard good news & not-so-good news about Mia’s progress. Knowing that our God is the Great Physician is the best news of all. He’ll never fail our girl. Please pray for Mia. Another surgery is scheduled this summer. #BraveMia.”
The fact that God is the “great physician” has been Missy’s anthem throughout the last several years with her daughter. In her book, “Blessed, Blessed…Blessed,” she talked about the process and where God was through the challenges.
She said, “This is where our faith and trust in God come into play. He knows so much better than we do what is best for us. I knew that in my head at one time, but our experience with Mia has made it a reality in my heart. I’ve also come to know that God loves my children even more than I do.”
While Missy has kept her faith about her daughter’s health, she is asking that fans from around the nation join her in prayer. Will you be praying for Mia during this time? Share your prayers here!
