Willie Robertson speaks out about the miracle of adoption

Posted: Updated:

WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News)- One hundred churches with 100 families who have open arms could greatly reduce the number foster children

That is why Louisiana Family Forum recruited a well known face to share how adoption can and will change your life.

 "Before you know all the fame and fortune was there we made the commitment to do it and it has really changed our lives and helped reshape at least one life in a kids life and any chance I get to promote that I am going to help out" says Willy Robertson.

 Louisiana Family Forum is launching the "Over the Edge for Adoption" initiative to connect willing church families with foster children.

Senator Mike Walsworth helped get legislation passed making the adoption process easier.

 "We wanted to make this easier for the family to bring their arms around a child. That's a hard decision but it shouldn't be the state and the red tape that bogs all that down so we have made that a lot easier to go through that process" says Walsworth.

 Robertson spoke to the group in hopes of encouraging people to make the same choice he and his wife did. He says it is a decision they would not change for the world.

 "Watching him grow everyday is like a miracle" says Robertson.

 The group is targeting pastors with the hope they will take the need for adoptive parents to their pulpits and their congregations.
