You’d be amazed at the questions adopted children are asked about being adopted. For some children, it begins as early as age 3: “Why don’t you look like your mom?” For others, it begins at school: “What happened to your real mother? Why did she give you away?” Friends, classmates – even well-meaning grown-ups – make comments or ask questions that can be uncomfortable for adopted children.
Empower your child with the W.I.S.E. Up!SM poster, pocket guide, Powerbook, or Powerbook for Children and Foster Care. Praised by parents around the world, this simple, effective content helps adopted children learn that their story is unique, personal and theirs to share (or not). The W.I.S.E. Up! Owl delivers easy-to-follow, polite and effective advice that adopted children can decide when and how to share information and respond to others’ questions and comments.
