Missy Robertson Reflects On ‘Family Of God’ After Taking In Newborn Baby

By Movieguide® Contributor

Former DUCK DYNASTY stars Missy and Jase Robertson are candid about their Christian faith and recently decided to show Christ’s love to a newborn baby. 

“In the years past, Jase and I have been involved in multiple ministries — some that we are engaged in with other people, some that we ran ourselves,” Missy told CBN’s Faithwire. “And in one of those ministries, we got to meet some amazing women, and it was one of these women who needed help at this time.”

One of these women had just given birth and needed help taking care of the newborn because she could not “physically take care of” the child. She asked the hospital to call Missy, and the baby was signed over to her. 

“When my phone rang and I talked to the person at the hospital, I thought, ‘There’s no way I can. How can I do this?'” Missy admitted. 

Missy said she was unsure how her husband, Jase, would react to the news. But Jase wanted to help just as much as she did. 

“He said, ‘I think we should do everything we can to help this baby and this mother,'” Missy shared. “And I said, ‘OK, well, here we go,’ and we brought him home the next day.”

In Missy’s new book, “Because You’re My Family,” she reflects on God’s family. 

“The book talks about parents loving a child, but the last [few] weeks the Lord has probed me more to even think about it being outside the family — the family of God,” she said. “And this girl, Jase baptized her a couple of years ago and Phil preached the Gospel to her, read Scriptures to her in his living room and I tried to show Jesus to her on almost a daily basis. And when this happened, she thought of us.”

The situation is not set in stone, but the Robertsons have temporary legal custody and trust God to guide them through the situation.

DUCK DYNASTY’s Jase and Missy Robertson recently welcomed a 2-day-old baby boy into their home. 

In an Instagram post, Missy writes: “We don’t know what his future looks like, but we are trusting that the Lord will guide our steps, guide his mother’s heart and surround him with a protective hedge of angels all of his life. Our friends and family are amazing! He is being loved on, showered with gifts and being prayed over 24/7. He is a gift. How long he will be in our care we do not know. We trust the Lord has him in His hands. We feel blessed to stand in the gap.”
