The Heart Gallery

The Heart Gallery is a traveling photographic exhibit created to find forever families for children in foster care.  It’s a collaborative project across the United States to increase the number of adoptive families for children needing homes in your community.  It gives a voice to hundreds of waiting children across Virginia.
