WFAPA conferences are a golden opportunity for foster and adoptive parents of Wisconsin to receive State approved licensing credits and to connect with other families and expert advisors.


We are excited to hosting a free, advance screening of Paramount Pictures’ Instant Family, starring Mark Wahlberg, Rose Byrne, Octavia Spencer, and Tig Notaro.

When: Wednesday, October 10th at 7:00pm
Where: Marcus Majestic Cinema, 770 N. Springdale Road, Waukesha, WI.

This movie has been receiving high praise from many foster care and adoption families and organizations all over the US---and with good reason. The screen writers and director have employed humor to address and normalize the difficult, yet very real, conversations and challenges many foster and adoptive families experience along their journeys. You can view the trailer for this movie here:

Registration is open to all. We strongly encourage you to extend the registration invitation to family and friends who may be thinking about getting started as a foster or adoptive parent as well as other foster care/adoption colleagues in the community!

Guess what? We are still working on WFAPA's ADOPTION Quilt!

If you have a child...or you were an adopted child, we would like to hear from you. I will send you the quilt square-which you can design-and then you will send it back to me. I will also need a short essay about what your adoption means to you (short means a couple paragraphs with no identifying information)

SO put on your thinking caps and create a square for the NEWEST WFAPA QUILT!
