W.I.S.E. Up! (Omaha)

About the Event

The Families Forever team is excited to present the W.I.S.E Up! Curriculum created by the Center for Adoption Support and Education. This presentation is designed to create a safe place for children to express their feelings about being adopted and prepare them for the inevitable classmate’s questions, neighbor’s remark and insensitive school assignments.

“Why don’t you look like your mom?” “Why were you adopted?” “Where are your real parents?”

When it comes to handling questions and comments about adoption, foster and kinship care, kids need to be empowered to decide how they want to respond. W.I.S.E. Up! helps children and teens choose what they want to share about their story, if anything.

This dual workshop (one for parents/adults, the other for children) is presented concurrently. This workshop is intended for children ages 6 to 14. 

This training will be held in-person at our Omaha main office.
