You Can Make a Difference
FASPP's (Foster and Adoptive Support and Preservation Program) mission is to meet the needs of foster and adoptive parents statewide through a network of peer driven support and information which will help to preserve foster and adoptive families.
Are You Feeling Lost?
Adopting a child is such a powerful, emotional experience and like pregnancy and birth, no two adoption stories are the same. We are making another WFAPA Quilt and if you have adopted a child or you were an adopted child, we would like to hear from you. Sherry will send you a quilt square-which you will design. Also, you will need to provide a short essay about what your adoption means to you.
Please remember, no identifying information. You can reach Sherry Benson, WFAPA treasurer and Social Worker Liaison, by emailing her at or by texting or
calling her at (715) 923-1124.
Be Part Of The Story
We regret to inform you that as a result of the COVID epidemic we will need to CANCEL our WFAPA Conference, which was scheduled for April 9-11, 2021 at the Grand Lodge Waterpark Resort in Rothschild, Wisconsin.
Whether you help by providing a monetary donation, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
