Heart Gallery
What is the Heart Gallery?

The Heart Gallery is a portrait exhibit displayed to raise awareness of the needs of foster children. Foster children waiting and hoping for their own adoptive family to love and protect them. Professional photographers volunteer to take compelling portraits and these beautifully framed and matted portraits get displayed along with the children's biographies in various venues that will touch your heart. Pictures in the Heart Gallery help you to appreciate these children!

A Family For Every Child (AFFEC) is a Heart Gallery. Heart Galleries, which participate in an umbrella organization, Heart Gallery of America, are all independent non-profit organizations, though some are started by and maintained by Pacific Northwest, both as photo displays and on the internet. AFFEC has also taken a pro-active role in the State of Washington, displaying Washington children for adoption and snagging washingtonheartgallery.org for listing Washington children (the Washington kids are listed here). We have had contact with social workers in Alaska, Idaho, and Montana who would like to photo-list children for adoption in those states as well, which we are pursuing as fast as we have resources to expand.

In June 2011, the Heart Gallery of New Mexico, one of the first Heart Galleries, celebrated ten years of producing stirring portraits of children waiting for adoption. If you have time, you are invited to visit one of our current venues. Many venues have better quality photos that can be displayed on the internet. Our websites also display web-quality photos of children. Our websites are a work-in-progress, and are constantly updated as we learn the status of children who are available for adoption. The sites are being combined, but at the present time, link between themselves. Feel welcome to browse around; they are replete with information on foster care, adoption, and post-adoption support.

The Vidette
A very touching example of one our Heart Galleries was highlighted in The Vidette newspaper in Montesano, Washington entitled A Message of the Heart written by Leif Nesheim (Editor/General Manager).
