The Indiana Heart Gallery, a traveling exhibit featuring compelling portraits of children in need of adoptive families, is stopping in Angola.
The Gallery will be featured at the Trine University in Capri Hall October 24 – October 31, 2016. The Indiana Department of Child Services uses the Heart Gallery’s portraits and stories about foster children in Indiana to help put a face on a sometimes invisible need and remind families that adoption can change lives. There is no charge to see the Gallery. Viewing is available Monday-Thursday 9 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. and Friday 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Nationally, nearly 400,000 children are in foster care in the United States. More than 100,000 are legally available for adoption and in need of adoptive families. Many of these children are older, in sibling groups that want to be adopted together or have special medical needs. For some foster kids, getting adopted can mean the difference between homelessness or incarceration and transitioning successfully to adulthood.
