Children available for adoption

We hope that you enjoy The Heart Gallery of Wisconsin photography exhibit. While the adoptability status of the children featured on this web site may change daily, we hope that you will come away from this gallery with the knowledge that children and adolescents of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds need a forever family to call their own.

We never have enough homes and there is always a need for homes for older children and groups of brothers and sisters. Adoption cuts across every ethnic, religious, social and economic level. Adoptive parents can be people of very modest means, or they can be at the top of the economic scale. We need all kinds of families
