Event Details

W.I.S.E. Up Conference

Saturday, September 16, 2017


Registration & Continental Breakfast


9:00-9:30 am




Parent Workshop:

Parents will participate in a workshop that will provide 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.

Children’s Workshop:

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.


12:00pm – 1:00pm

Lunch Provided
