With all of the controversy surrounding Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson and his political views, it’s easy to forget that the A&E show isn’t just about him — it’s about his entire extended family, including his fourteen grandchildren. And according to the family, it’s one of his precious Robertson younguns that needs our good thoughts this week.

Phil’s son Jase and his wife, Missy’s, daughter Mia was born with a cleft lip and a cleft palate. Missy announced yesterday via social media that the otherwise healthy fourth-grader will be going into surgery today (January 3) for a procedure related to her condition:

“Almost done with pre-op appts today,” she begins. “Surgery tomorrow at 11am. Thanks so much for all the prayers! #FeelingBlessed”

Mia’s cousin Sadie — Willie and Korie’s teenage daughter — also took to Twitter to show support and love for the sweet girl, writing alongside the photo at the left: “Please pray for my sweet cousin Mia. She is about to have a big surgery, and she is such an inspiration to everyone.”

Our thoughts are with you, Mia! Despite the media frenzy around this family, it’s clear that they’re a loving and close brood, and we wish them and their little ones all the best.
