A native speaker of Spanish would never spell mija (mi hija) with an H, since the H would be silent,
Assuming that the native has gone to school and learnt to read and write, that is.

I think your guess is right, but the spelling is... let's just say sad.

A Spanish friend wrote that? The spelling is strange. I would guess the intended meaning to be "Ay ay ay, mi hija." A native speaker of Spanish would never spell mija (mi hija) with an H, since the H would be silent, and even if it is just a typo (H and J are adjacent keys), why would he add the superfluous "mi," since mija already means mi hija?

If you give us more context we might be able to figure this out better, and tell you exactly what the person is trying to say.

The telenovelas are Mexican, so it may just be a contraction they use. It's a term of endearment, used by people other than parents.
Is your friend mexicano'
