About the Gallery

The Heart Gallery is an online multimedia exhibit created to find forever families for children in foster care. The Heart Gallery of America is a collaborative project of over 120 Heart Galleries across the United States (and growing) designed to increase the number of adoptive families for children needing homes in our community. The Heart Gallery model is being replicated in many communities across the country.

This site is dedicated to increasing awareness of the more than 150 foster care children in Miami-Dade who are in need of permanent homes. The individuality and spirit of the children were captured by some of the world’s top photographers, who generously donated their time and talent. In addition to the captivating portraits, The Miami Heart Gallery is among only several in the country with audio messages from waiting children, allowing you to hear their hopes and dreams for the future. With your help, we can reach our goal of finding homes for all of Miami-Dade’s foster children who are eligible for adoption. Whether you're interested in adopting, fostering or volunteering, the Miami Heart Gallery is a photographic journey with links to resources filled with all the information you need to make an informed decision.

From Maine to California and Florida to Washington state, these dedicated Heart Gallery planners have added their own touches, and through hard work and the generosity of their communities, they have helped these special children step out from the shadows into the light.
