Heart Gallery

The heart gallery of Illinois logo 

The Heart Gallery is an innovative approach to finding loving adoptive families for children in foster care. The gallery features beautiful portraits of these children, taken by professional photographers from all across Illinois.

When the gallery is displayed in person, it inspires families to see foster care adoption in a brand new light. Our team is working hard to find families for these children. Can you help us?

  • If you would like to parent a child or children in foster care, please contact us to get started today! All of the children featured in our Heart Gallery are listed on our Waiting Children pages. Click here to view profiles.
  • If you would like to refer a friend or family member who may be interested in parenting a child or children in foster care, please share our information with them and ask them to contact us today!
  • Thank you for your consideration. Together, we can find families for waiting children, raise awareness of foster care adoption, and create lasting, positive change throughout Illinois.

Volunteer Photographers Needed
We also rely on the generous contributions of our volunteer photographers, who donate their time and talent to create our Heart Gallery portraits. If you are a professional photographer who is interested in volunteering, please contact Let It Be Us at 847-764-LIBU (5428). As a statewide organization, we are interested in hearing from photographers in every region of Illinois.
