Raising awareness about adoption is something near and dear to the Robertson family. This is especially true when it comes to Willie and Korie Robertson who have adopted two children of their own.
Willie and Korie have five children together. John, Sadie, and Bella are their biological children, while Will was adopted at birth and Rebecca is their foster daughter. Rebecca was initially an exchange student from Taiwan, but the family fell in love with her and decided to take her in as one of their own.
“I think it’s important for people to know that we adopted Will before we became rich and famous— I say that because I think sometimes people think that only the rich and famous have what it takes, the money, the staff, to give a home to a child,” says Willie, “But the truth is anyone can do it, once you have committed to make that kind of difference in a child’s life. It’s one of the best things we’ve ever done.”
The Duck Dynasty power couple partnered with Worldwide Foundation to give their fans an opportunity to donate funds for a chance to win a VIP Duck Commander experience. The winner gets an inside look at the Duck Commander Headquarters with Willie and fly in a private plane to watch an NFL game between the New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys.
Proceeds from donations will benefit Drive Adoption, a new initiative of the Worldwide Foundation, created to provide education and awareness regarding both domestic and international adoption.
