5Unfortunately, adoption can cost a lot of money. And when Willie and Korie Robertson tried to adopt their son, Will, they didn’t have the money for it.
“We said, ‘We’re good for it – we’ll come back,’” Willie said at the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute’s Angels in Adoption Gala. He and Korie were honored there earlier this year. “We’ve paid it, by the way.”
Despite the hilarious moments throughout the show, both Duck Dynasty stars take adoption very seriously. They have a “no child left behind” mentality.
“There shouldn’t be kids without homes,” Korie said. “It just shouldn’t happen.”
She has said before that all you need to adopt is pretty much an extra bed.
“It’s just about having an extra bedroom, or an extra bed for a kid…” she said. “And having the heart to say you know we can do this; we can love a child that’s not our own.”
And she believes more people, especially Christians, should be on the frontlines of adoption. Whether it’s adopting or supporting those who do, we should all pitch in.
“[Adoption is] important because of awareness,” she said. “I think a lot of the time it’s something that we don’t know. We don’t talk about it, so we don’t really know the need for adoption.”
