The Childrenâ€™s Trust Miami Heart Gallery Features New Portraits of Foster Children Available for Adoption in Third Annual Exhibit
Museum-Quality Photographs Taken by World-Renowned Photographers to show at HistoryMiami
The Children’s Trust Miami Heart Gallery is a traveling museum-quality exhibit featuring portraits of children in Miami-Dade’s foster care system who are available for adoption. The Art Deco theme of this year’s exhibit is inspired by Miami Beachâ€™s historic Art Deco District where all 44 portraits were photographed. Now in its third year, the exhibit has a more than 50-percent adoption rate.
The Childrenâ€™s Trust Miami Heart Gallery is a partnership between The Childrenâ€™s Trust and Our Kids, the private agency responsible for foster care and adoption in Miami-Dade County and the Florida Keys. According to the state of Florida, more than 1,500 foster children are eligible for adoption in Florida and approximately 150 of them live in Miami-Dade. These children have been removed from their biological parents for reasons of abuse or neglect with no possibility of family reunification.
