Indiana Heart Gallery logo

  The Indiana Heart Gallery is a traveling photographic exhibit featuring children in foster care who need and deserve a safe and loving home. The gallery showcases remarkable professional portraits of and stories about foster children in Indiana – all of whom long for loving and safe homes. The dramatic photos put a face on a sometimes invisible need and remind families that adoption can change lives.

Below are a few of the children in the Heart Gallery Tour. Click on each image for more details.

The Indiana Heart Gallery was created by the Indiana Department of Child Services in 2007 as one way to help these incredible children share their stories and hope of joining a family and encourage families to adopt. Many of the foster children featured in the gallery are older or special needs children, minorities, or members of a sibling group. All are considered hard-to-place children. Our goal is to keep the Heart Gallery moving until all of the children are adopted!
