“Duck Dynasty’s” Jase and Missy Robertson with tears in their eyes make the sad announcement

Mia Robertson, the youngest child of Duck Dynasty members Jake and Missy Robertson, was born with cleft lip and palate, a birth defect characterized by an opening in the top lip that may also affect the gums.

Approximately one in every 1,600 newborns born in the United States has a cleft lip and cleft palate, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Sweet Mia, now eighteen, has had to endure 13 operations due to her ailment; the fourteenth one was just completed a short while ago. The family sincerely hopes that this will be Mia’s final procedure before her issue is resolved.

The young child stays upbeat through each surgery. Above all, she aspires to be an encouragement to other young children who share her condition at birth. Mia started the Mia Moo Fund on her own initiative and with the support of her family to help ensure that every child has a smile on their face.

Missy Robertson told Christian Post, “One of the Mia Moo Fund’s functions is to spread awareness of the cleft lip and palate journey.””The other one is to assist in providing medical funds for the families and parents who are currently residing in America.”

Jase Robertson provided an update on Mia’s status and mentioned that his daughter is healing nicely on his podcast, Unashamed.

“She’s doing fantastic. He declared, “She’s turned a corner,” and went on, “Everything seems great, seems to be fine.”

 

 

The devoted father informed his listeners on his podcast, “Surgery went a little longer than expected, but she is home and recovering.” “We appreciate your prayers for her and our family. She truly is a champion!

Prior to the procedure, Missy discussed her daughter’s health and mentioned that she had been questioned frequently about how many procedures Mia will require going forward. “We simply don’t know is the only response that is ever given,” Missy stated. She continued by saying that they look to God for support. “Since turning eighteen, she has assumed the initiative in all conversations and medical paperwork. It’s been a bit peculiar,” Missy penned. However, it serves as yet another reminder to rely on the Lord and recognize that I am not in charge.

In addition, Mia wishes to be at “the finish line.”

“Hopefully this will be the last time I see my physicians like this! We’ve come to the end of the journey, brave Mia remarked.

As they welcome a child whose mother is unfit to care for them into their hearts and home, the Robertson family has also been getting ready for a new member.

We hope Mia heals quickly.
