Entry Description

EVANSVILLE, IND. (May 1, 2013) – Throughout Indiana, there are approximately 1,100 foster kids eligible for adoption and while many will be adopted by a relative or foster family, the Indiana Department of Child Services is actively seeking adoptive families for a number of them.. The Indiana Heart Gallery, a compelling exhibit featuring portraits of children in need of adoptive families, is on display at the Koch Family Children’s Museum of Evansville, May 9-31, with a special reception and event to be held on Thursday, May 9, 5-7 p.m. The event – and admission to the Museum, is free and open to the public. Reservations requested. Representatives from the Indiana Department of Child Services will be in attendance and hope the event will attract families interested in learning more about foster care and adoption.


The Indiana Heart Gallery is a traveling photographic exhibit featuring children in foster care who need and deserve forever families. The gallery showcases remarkable professional portraits of and stories about foster children in Indiana – all of whom long for loving and safe homes. The dramatic photos put a face on a sometimes invisible population and remind families that adoption can change lives. A picture is truly worth a thousand words. One look at the Gallery reveals hope in spite of difficult circumstances. Although many of the children were removed from abusive and neglectful situations, their photos show they love to laugh, are eager to learn, and enjoy being with friends.  Most of all, the children dream of finding their very own forever family.
