The Heart Gallery
Meet The Children

With over 100,000 children in the foster care system hoping to find their forever families, it's through the efforts of our larger community, including you, that they will be able to find homes filled with love, safety, and stability. The children featured on our Heart Gallery are from Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC, and many of them are eligible to be adopted by families in any part of the country.
