W.I.S.E Up workshops give children in grades 1 -5 and their parents the techniques to handle comments and questions about adoption. This program gives children the power to choose how to talk about adoption with others. During these workshops, parents and children will work in two separate groups and then come together at the end to share their experiences.
Adoption Options is excited to be able to offer this workshop for the first time in Manitoba.

Location: Bethel Mennonite Church, 465 Stafford Street

The W.I.S.E. Up Workbook
W.I.S.E. Up the Owl leads young readers through the book with questions about feelings, different ways the topic of adoption is brought up by peers, and how to handle situations as they arise. Kids are given choices on how to respond with several different examples. The W.I.S.E. Up Powerbook offers kids real solutions that they can use at any time to handle themselves with confidence and strength.
Adoption Options has Adoptee W.I.S.E Up workbooks available to purchase for $20.00 each plus shipping fees. If you are interested in purchasing a book please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
