Making Forever Families

The Miami Heart Gallery is an online multimedia exhibit created to find forever families for local children in foster care. It is part of the Heart Gallery of America, a collaborative project of more than 85 Heart Galleries across the United States (and growing!) designed to increase the number of adoptive families for children needing homes nationwide. From Massachusetts to California and Florida to Washington state, dedicated Heart Gallery sites – through hard work and the generosity of their communities – have helped these special children step out from the shadows and into the light.
This site is dedicated to increasing awareness of children in foster care in Miami-Dade who are in need of permanent homes. The individuality and spirit of the children featured have been captured by some of the world’s top photographers, who generously donate their time and talent to this initiative. In addition to the captivating portraits, the Miami Heart Gallery is among only several in the country with audio messages from waiting children, allowing you to hear their hopes and dreams for the future. With your help, we can reach our goal of finding homes for every child in foster care in Miami-Dade who is eligible for adoption. Whether you’re interested in adopting, fostering or volunteering, the Miami Heart Gallery is a photographic journey with links to resources filled with all the information you need to make an informed decision.
