You Won’t Believe What Mia Looks Like Now…

Missy Robertson and her daughter Mia attended the Wonder premiere last week. The Duck wife was quick to praise her daughter for her tremendous ability to speak with fans and encourage other craniofacial kids. Mia is certainly a wonderful 14-year-old.

Missy Robertson Is A Proud Mama

Last night Mia and I were invited by the Children’s Craniofacial Association to welcome craniofacial families, friends, surgeons and medical care givers to the Dallas premiere of the movie Wonder. Watching my child interact with these kids and their parents was one of my proudest moments as a mom. She has learned that she inspires them with her self-confidence and inner joy, & she embraces it. Since she is a craniofacial kid herself, she understands their language and their feelings. She knows the looks people give. She knows the questions people want to ask but don’t. She knows the mean comments people write on social media. Watching her hug these kids, compliment their dresses and outfits and tell them how it was so very nice to meet them, I had to hold back my own tears of pride. Even though the story of Auggie Pullman is fictional, it represents real life for so many craniofacial children and their families. This movie/book not only tells the story from Auggie‘s point of view but also his sister (who represents all super-sibs) and his parents. Needless to say, it effected all of us sitting in the theatre in a very personal way. After the movie, advocacy awards were given. The man in the blue suit (please scroll to see the pictures) was awarded the patient advocate award. He is a successful businessman who gives his own time and money to help children like him. He was abandoned at the hospital at 36 hours old by his parents when they saw his physical problems. He advocates for anti-bullying on social media. He read to us statements that he has received just this week on his social media pages. They were horrible and mean, telling him he is not worth living. He told the kids in the room that they ARE worth it, that the people who write these statements don’t like themselves and try to make others feel like them. But he said he liked the man he has become. He took that paper, ripped it to pieces and tossed the pieces in the air. He told the kids they don’t need to listen to those lies. The theatre erupted in applause. Please see this movie. Please take your kids. Please talk to them about being kind. Please be kind yourself. You may be the only one who is.

Missy Robertson couldn’t be more proud of her daughter Mia. The 14-year-old was born with a cleft lip and palate. She has undergone multiple surgeries, some of which were highlighted on Duck Dynasty.

Mia is a smart little girl with a natural talent for serving others. Missy wrote, “Last night Mia and I were invited by the Children’s Craniofacial Association to welcome craniofacial families, friends, surgeons and medical care givers to the Dallas premiere of the movie Wonder. Watching my child interact with these kids and their parents was one of my proudest moments as a mom. She has learned that she inspires them with her self-confidence and inner joy, & she embraces it.”

Mia has learned to be compassionate through her own struggles. With only 14 years of life under her belt, this little girl has faced more than most adults. Missy continued, ” Since she is a craniofacial kid herself, she understands their language and their feelings. She knows the looks people give. She knows the questions people want to ask but don’t.”

Wonder is a movie about a fictional child with Treacher Collins Syndrome. The film and book chronicle his experience in grade school. The story highlights the importance of kindness, acceptance, and family support. Many schools have chosen the film as a field trip destination because of its remarkable anti-bullying message.

Mia’s Writing

Mia isn’t just speaking verbally with fans these days. She’s also a published author now. Missy shared, “This young book lover and avid reader is now an author! Info on our new, fun, faith-filled fictional series soon!” The story, Allie’s Bayou Rescue, is a part of the Princess in Camo series. It will be available on Amazon this February.

Missy Robertson certainly has a lot to be proud of. Mia Robertson is an incredible kid, with a bright future.
