Welcome to the official website of The Children's Trust Miami Heart Gallery, a web-based, museum-quality exhibit featuring portraits of children in Miami-Dade's foster care system who are available for adoption. This initiative is a collaboration between The Children's Trust and Our Kids of Miami-Dade/Monroe.

The Miami Heart Gallery has featured more than 300 children; half have since found permanent homes, here and in other parts of the country. Photo shoots have taken place throughout the county at an eclectic group of iconic sites – from the lush green field of dreams at Marlins Park and the vibrant, art exhibit-like spaces of the Miami Ad School, to the bustling halls and sun-drenched campus of the University of Miami.

Like the fictional sisters in their favorite TV show, Liv and Maddie, it sometimes seems as if siblings Myya and Kayla have nothing in common.
