Willie & Korie’s Story

Willie and Korie RobertsonAdoption has touched our family in profound ways since the moment our son Will came into our family at just five weeks old. Will continues to bless our lives daily as we watch him grow and become the man God calls him to be. In 2004, we were honored to welcome Rebecca Lo into our family. She first came as an exchange student from Taiwan and has been a wonderful addition to our family ever since. Recently, through God’s great mercy and favor, we were again blessed with the opportunity to begin the process of adopting another child into our family. It all began with a meeting at an unlikely event: the Duck Commander 500. At the spring 2015 event—in between the hectic rush of press conferences, riding in pace cars, and announcing, “Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines”—Willie and I walked into a quiet little room and our lives were forever changed when we met the twelve-year-old boy who would soon become ours.

It is in honor of that special meeting and the millions of children around the world who are still waiting to find a family to call their own that we have decided to dedicate this race to the cause of adoption. Our theme for the 2016 Duck Commander 500 is Drive Adoption and we plan to do just that. It is our hope and dream that this race will drive families to consider adoption, connect people in need of adoption resources with organizations that can help, and bring to light the beautiful children around the world in need of a loving, caring family. Adoption is rarely easy, but it is ALWAYS worth it. We hope to make the adoption process easier by providing a platform for awareness, resources, and education, with the ultimate goal of uniting children with forever families.

Please consider how you or your organization could be a part of this event and come join us in our efforts to Drive Adoption!

God Bless,
