FosterMore presents the Heart Gallery.
The Heart Gallery is a traveling photographic and audio exhibit created to find forever families for children in foster care. The Heart Gallery of America is a collaborative project of over 120 Heart Galleries across the United States designed to increase the number of adoptive families for children needing homes in our community.
Now, in its fourteenth year, the Heart Gallery model is being replicated in many communities across the country. Although many of our children were removed from abusive and neglectful situations, they still have hope. They love to laugh, to learn, and to be with their friends. Most of all, they dream of finding a forever family to be their own.
Meet the foster children.
Daisy 11, Joseph 9 & Jasmin 8
Fall for this loving sibling set of three! Daisy is a sweet and adoring big sister who lights up when she spends time with her siblings. She loves to read, sing and watch Disney movies. She likes to be helpful and loves to go to school where she receives special education due to mild mental retardation.
Joseph is a bright and talkative young man who loves anything outdoors. You will find him riding his scooter or bike, playing outside with his siblings or settling in for a good movie, Spiderman being his favorite. He has many friends and does well academically.
Jasmin is the beautiful, bubbly baby of the group. She has an outgoing personality and is loved by all. Playing dress up with her dolls and playing outside rate high on her list of favorite activities and she does well in school. These three have a strong bond and are hoping to find a family that will commit to adopting them together. https://fostermore.org/wp-content/themes/fostermore/scripts/timthumb.php?src=https://fostermore.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Daisy-Jasmin-and-Joseph-by-Susanne-Elstein.jpg&w=300&a=t
Sweet, affectionate, loving and outgoing, Isaiah is a charming little guy who wants a family more than anything. He craves the love and attention of adults and shines when given that one on one attention. Isaiah is always up for a new adventure and loves to be engaged in physical activities.
Running, riding his bike and going to the park are his favorites. Fascinated with police officers, he aspires to be one someday. Isaiah was born prematurely and as a result has some delays and mild hearing loss. Combined with special education services at school, he is making great progress in all areas. Be the one to give Isaiah the benefit of a forever family. https://fostermore.org/wp-content/themes/fostermore/scripts/timthumb.php?src=https://fostermore.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Isiah-8-Hannah-Sloan.jpg&w=300&a=t
Jesus is a young man who comes alive in the great outdoors. He loves to stay active with boy scouts, camping, hiking, surfing and running. He is an excellent student, and has been recognized for his academic achievements. This is no small feat for any child, but even more amazing for a child who has experienced his share of heartbreaks.
In his down time he is an avid reader of mysteries and detective novels. Jesus loves animals and hopes to someday have a dog or a cat of his own. Above all Jesus would love to be a part of a family who will be there for him unconditionally, and keep him on the right path so he can fulfill his dream of attending college. https://fostermore.org/wp-content/themes/fostermore/scripts/timthumb.php?src=https://fostermore.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Jesus-by-Amy-Von-Harrington.jpg&w=300&a=t
Samantha is known for her great sense of humor and her love of music. She enjoys making others laugh, and is happiest with her headphones on getting lost in her favorite songs. She has experienced her fair share of loss at an early age as she continues to grieve the death of her mother.
Samantha is a hard worker at school and it is paying off. She is now doing well academically. Samantha does have relationships with her adult siblings and would like to remain in contact with them even after her adoption. https://fostermore.org/wp-content/themes/fostermore/scripts/timthumb.php?src=https://fostermore.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Samantha-by-Ted-and-Debbie.jpg&w=300&a=t
