A Portrait Exhibit of Children in Need of Adoption

The Freddie Mac Foundation Heart Gallery

The Heart Gallery features compelling portraits of children in foster care who are waiting to be adopted. The moving photos capture the spirit of these children – all of whom are hoping to find a loving, permanent family of their own.

Their faces are just a few of the half million that form the picture of foster care in this country.

The children featured in our gallery are from Washington, D.C. and the surrounding areas. Since November 2005, our exhibit has traveled around the Capital area. To date, more than 110 children have been adopted.

There are more than 60 Heart Galleries nationwide. This gallery, supported by the Freddie Mac Foundation, is the first of its kind in the D.C. area.

The Foundation thanks its host partners for their commitment to our community.

Previously, the Heart Gallery was displayed in Washington, D.C., at Union Station, the John A. Wilson Building (housing the D.C. Mayor's office and City Council) and the Kennedy Center; and in Virginia at the Fairfax County Government Center and at Freddie Mac.
