Children's Action Network presents Heart Gallery Los Angeles is a special exhibit of photographs featuring Los Angeles foster youth hoping for a loving adoptive family, designed to highlight the need to find adoptive families for waiting children. Heart Galleries feature foster children who were removed from abusive and neglectful situations, but still have hope. They love to laugh, to learn, and to be with their friends. Most of all, they dream of finding their own forever family. Our goal is to help these deserving children find families by recruiting professional photographers to create a gallery of photographs which capture the children’s true beauty and spirit.

Special thanks to our curator Angie Featherstone
and all the wonderful photographers who participated including
Marie Claire, Siri Kaur, Brooke Nevin, Michael Shields andHannah Sloan

 

The project is a partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.
