A couple months ago I was contacted by The Minnesota Heart Gallery. The mission of the Minnesota Heart Gallery is to help children and teens living in foster care find permanent and commiteed families, and to raise community awareness of our shared responsibility to each of these youth. Minnesota Heart Gallery helps to restore a sense of belonging, dignity, and hope in the lives of children and teens who are in foster care. Minnesota Heart Gallery is a large network of social workers, volunteers, and photographers all trying to make a difference in these children’s lives!
I was very honored to be contacted by the Minnesota Heart Gallery to photograph a young boy who is currently in foster care in a community near me. The session was so much fun and very rewarding! I hope that by sharing my talents, this young boy can find a permanent home. I couldn’t imagine not having the support of my family, and knowing that the photos that I have taken just might give him what I have always taken for granted gives me a huge smile! Although I can’t post photos here of the young boy, I encourage you to visit the Minnesota Heart Gallery Fan Page as well as their website to see photos of the youth and to learn more about what Minnesota Heart Gallery is all about! My photos should be shared in both places shortly! I will be sure to keep everyone updated when they go up!
Here is a video about Ampersand Families, the great people who organize the Heart Gallery here in MN. I think this sums up what everything is about.
If you are not from MN but want to find a Heart Gallery near you, please visit The Heart Gallery of America.
