5-4-2011 7th Annual Heart Gallery

Posted: Updated:

THE ADOPTION EXCHANGE'S 6TH ANNUAL HEART GALLERY PREMIERED TONITE.

THE EVENT FEATURES PROFESSIONALLY PREPARED GALLERY-SIZED PHOTOS OF FOSTER CHILDREN WAITING FOR ADOPTION.  MANY OF THE PICTURES SHOW SIBLING SETS NEEDING TO BE ADOPTED TOGETHER, AND IF YOU RECOGNIZE THESE FACES - YES -- MANY OF THESE KIDS APPEAR ON WEDNESDAY'S CHILD.  THE EVENT BRINGS ALL INTERESTED PARTIES TOGETHER:

OH, YEAH, LIKE EVEN TONITE, THERE'S A COUPLE OF FAMILIES THAT ARE INTERESTED IN SOME OF THESE LARGE SIBLING GROUPS, AND WE'RE ABLE TO CONNECT THEM RIGHT THERE WITH THE FOSTER PARENTS THAT THEY'RE CURRENTLY LIVING WITH AND TO HAVE THE RECRUITER RIGHT THERE, AND TO HAVE THE KIDS RIGHT THERE, AND EVERYBODY PULLING IN THE SAME AREA," says Kimberly Goffinet of The Adoption Exchange.

 IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS, NEARLY 94% OF THE CHILDREN FEATURED THIS WAY HAVE ADOPTION PLANS... SO IT'S AN IDEA THAT WORKS.  THE HEART GALLERY WILL BE AT UNITED HEALTH FOR THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.
