Join us in Eau Claire on September 22 for the W.I.S.E. Up! the World about Adoption Conference. This is an extraordinary conference for parents and children alike and will teach you both some valuable tools and tips about sharing your adoption story.
Parents will participate in a workshop that will proved an in-depth understanding of what children comprehend, think and feel about adoption as they grow. The common questions, fears and concerns adopted children face will be addressed. We will also explore the dynamic between non-adopted peers, extended family, and even strangers.
This program has spread across the country as children have embraced its simplicity and power to address the consistent challenge of explaining adoption and their adoption stories to peers, neighbors and even strangers. W.I.S.E. UP!® is a tool to empower children to handle questions and comments about adoption from others. This program helps children realize that they are not alone with this task. Children will learn the program, create Powerstix and role play various scenarios.
