Heart Gallery showcases portraits of children in need of adoptive families

TERRE HAUTE — The Indiana Heart Gallery, a compelling exhibit featuring portraits of children in need of adoptive families, will be featured Friday through Sunday in Indiana State University’s Hulman Center, 200 N. Eighth St. The Indiana Department of Child Services uses the Heart Gallery to help bring attention to children in foster care in need of a forever home. Though the exact number of Indiana foster kids seeking an adoptive home varies day-to-day, DCS is actively recruiting adoptive families for 75 to 100 youth.

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 families that will give them unconditional love.

The Indiana Heart Gallery will display 12 portraits from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. There is no charge to see the Heart Gallery exhibit.         

For more information about the Indiana Heart Gallery, go to www.in.gov/dcs/3033.htm.
