See Indiana Heart Gallery at Sullivan County Library

Sullivan — A compelling exhibit of photographic portraits of children in need of adoptive families, the Indiana Heart Gallery, is stopping by the Sullivan County Library from Saturday through March 25. The Indiana Department of Child Services uses the Heart Gallery to help raise awareness about the approximately 300 Hoosier children currently in foster care still in need of a forever home. 

“All children want a home filled with love and a family with whom they can share their birthdays and celebrate holidays. They want a room with their own toys, to have friends, play sports and participate in after-school activities. Most importantly, they want a loving, supportive family to be there for them as they grow up,” noted DCS director James Payne. “The children featured in the Heart Gallery are no exception. They just need a little help from all of us in finding that forever family.”

Using the talents of professional photographers who volunteer their time, the individual spirit and true personality of each child is captured. Heart Gallery photographs sometimes show shy children wrapped in their security blankets, girls dressed up as princesses, boys hugging dogs and siblings laughing together.  The children all have one thing in common: They need and deserve families that will give them unconditional love. 

The Indiana Heart Gallery will display a dozen portraits at the Sullivan County Library, 100 S. Crowder in Sullivan. Viewing hours are: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. The exhibit is free.
