The Heart Gallery of Wisconsin
Facilitated by Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Community Services, The Heart Gallery of Wisconsin raises awareness about foster children and adoption. It is based on a simple idea that already has made a huge impact in other states across the nation.
Professional photographers have volunteered their time to take compelling pictures of children hoping to be adopted. The portraits are part of a traveling public gallery. They also are shared online at www.heartgallerywi.org. The gallery and online displays include contact information to help families inquire about adoption. The concept, which began with a single exhibition in Santa Fe, N.M., has experienced great success and now includes 120 Heart Gallery organizations across the United States.
Who are the children?
Today in the United States, an estimated 408,000 children live in foster care. More than 104,000 of these children are hoping for a loving adoptive forever family to call their own.
Everyone wants a safe, loving place to call home, and children in foster care deserve it as much as anyone. Finding those homes is the beginning of a bright future for these children, their adoptive families and the community at large.
