Heart Gallery

What is the Heart Gallery?

Our Heart Gallery displays the personalities of our foster children and siblings that are waiting to find their forever families by photographing them in settings outside of a caseworker’s office. These are the smiles of children you see in your neighborhood playing, children that your child goes to school with, these are children you could see as an addition to your family someday. The Heart Gallery is not just a program, it is the hope that you can provide a forever family for a waiting foster child.

“I love the Heart Gallery. When I worked at Market Of Choice they had pictures there. One day this little girl was sitting on her dad’s shoulders and he pointed to the picture wall and said, “Your picture used to be right there – I had told you I found you in grocery store.” And the girl started laughing and smiled at the wall. That about broke my heart in a happy way, I almost cried. And that’s why I love the Heart Gallery.”

Who are the Heart Gallery Children?

The children pictured represent the 400,000 children in foster care in the United States, 30,000 of whom are here in the Northwest, waiting for a forever family to love them. Since A Family For Every Child was founded more than 500 foster children have been featured in Heart Galleries, and more than 250 have found their forever families.

How does the Heart Gallery work?

The Heart Gallery is a traveling “art exhibit” of beautiful professional photographs of local and nationwide children who are currently in foster care and waiting to be adopted. Our mission is to find a safe permanent loving home for every waiting foster child.

The kids are really three of the sweetest children I have ever encountered. Considering the circumstances, I just didn’t know what to expect. Little J*** ran up and hugged me around my legs when we walked in. That was just about too much for me a softy at heart but tries not to show it. Patient, courteous, and sweet to each other was not what I expected. The foster parents really cared for the kids. Again, my pre-conception was that they might be just doing it to make a little money (who doesn’t need that), but I was really impressed with how they loved the kids. Those three are lucky to have a safety net as good as that.
