A section of the Freddie Mac Foundation Heart Gallery including photo portraits of four Fairfax County children will be on display the week of March 22 – 26 at the Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway in Fairfax.
The compelling exhibit features professional photographs of area children who are in foster care and need adoptive homes. Displayed in different venues throughout the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, the Heart Gallery helps raise public awareness of the need for adoptive families for children in foster care and has brought forward adoptive families for 66 local children since its launch in November 2005.
There are more than 60 Heart Galleries nationwide, each one representing local children of that state or region. Information about the Heart Gallery is available on the Web.
The security and love of a family is what every child needs and what the children pictured in the Freddie Mac Foundation Heart Gallery hope for, above all else. Join the Fairfax County Department of Family Services and the Freddie Mac Foundation in helping to find loving, adoptive families for these children.
