Event Details

W.I.S.E. UP!® is an empowerment program designed to create a safe space for children to express their feelings about being adopted and prepare them for intrusive questions and insensitive remarks from peers and others like:

  • “Why don’t you look like your parents?”
  • “How much did you cost?”
  • “Where are your real parents?”

The Cradle is proud to be the only organization in Illinois trained to facilitate this program that empowers adopted and foster children to decide if, when and how to share their stories. Developed by the Center for Adoption Support and Education (CASE), W.I.S.E. Up!® gives kids the tools to answer when questions inevitably begin.

The Cradle’s W.I.S.E. Up!® sessions are open to all families. Siblings are not included in the session and babysitting is not provided.

Space is limited to 15 children.

At least one parent or guardian must be in attendance.
