The Heart Gallery was started in 2001. Its mission was to get skilled photographers to take inspiring portraits of kids in foster care to find homes for them and recruit new families as foster providers. In 2016, the Waiting Child Heart Gallery of Oklahoma has renamed the Oklahoma Heart Gallery.

Adoption.com has photolistings of children available for adoption all over the country. These kids are in foster care through no fault of their own. They deserve to be in loving families with people who will love and care for them.

For those considering adoption, foster adoptions are practically free. It is a common misconception that kids in foster care are all troubled. Most of these children are just typical kids who were put in a tough situation.
