WFAPA's Adoption Quilt

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. We recognize each adoption story is as varied as the individuals involved.  Adopting a child is such a powerful, emotional experience and like pregnancy and birth, no two adoption stories are the same.

At our Fall Conference in October, we will have tables set up with blank cloth squares. Throughout the conference, anyone attending who has adopted a child(ren) or has been adopted will be invited to color and create — making their own masterpiece. Along with creating your work of art, we ask that you write a short article about what our adoption means to you with no identifying information.

Making a Quilt

Once we have a collection of these beautiful creations, they will be woven together with other quilt squares. With each creation, our quilt becomes bigger and stronger. Once completed, the quilt and the stories that go along with it, will be displayed to raise awareness about adoption and celebrate amazing children and their families.

If you can't make it to our Fall Conference, you can reach out to Sherry Benson, WFAPA Treasurer and Social Worker Liaison, and she will mail you a blank cloth square and fabric markers, with return postage. Again, we ask that you write a short article about what your adoption means to you with no identifying information and mail this along with your quilt square and markers.  You can reach Sherry by calling or texting her at (715) 923-1124 or by emailing her at
