Welcome to the official website of The Children's Trust Miami Heart Gallery, a web-based, museum-quality exhibit featuring portraits of children in Miami-Dade's foster care system who are available for adoption. This initiative is a collaboration between The Children's Trust and Our Kids of Miami-Dade/Monroe.

The Miami Heart Gallery has featured more than 300 children; half have since found permanent homes, here and in other parts of the country. Photo shoots have taken place throughout the county at an eclectic group of iconic sites – from the lush green field of dreams at Marlins Park and the vibrant, art exhibit-like spaces of the Miami Ad School, to the bustling halls and sun-drenched campus of the University of Miami and Frost Art Museum at Florida International University.

Little Brianna is a happy and affectionate child who playfully interacts and communicates nonverbally with her foster family.
