Heart Gallery Los Angeles

         
     
             
             
 

Children's Action Network presents Heart Gallery Los Angeles is a special exhibit of photographs featuring Los Angeles foster youth hoping for a loving adoptive family, designed to highlight the need to find adoptive families for waiting children. Heart Galleries feature foster children who were removed from abusive and neglectful situations, but still have hope. They love to laugh, to learn, and to be with their friends. Most of all, they dream of finding their own forever family. Our goal is to help these deserving children find families by recruiting professional photographers to create a gallery of photographs which capture the children’s true beauty and spirit.

Special thanks to our curator Angie Featherstone
and all the wonderful photographers who participated including
Siri Kaur, Brooke Nevin, Frankie Norstad, Marjorie Salvaterra,
Michael Shields, Sal Owen

 

The project is a partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.

Brittany, Age 14

Brittany’s shy smile reveals that she is somewhat quiet and reserved when meeting new people, but once she is comfortable, she is very personable. She enjoys being independent of thought and mind and takes pride in making sound decisions. She has no problem saying no to peer pressure and prides herself on this quality! Brittany loves all sports ranging from jujutsu to volleyball to basketball to soccer. She really is a natural born athlete who pours her everything into whatever sport she plays. She is very well-rounded and grounded and supports health causes like breast cancer awareness by wearing pink. Brittany enjoys painting, listening to music, and going for walks in the park. She has taken up the art of knitting and she is also looking to be part of a tight-knit family. Brittany would love to have a family to create a permanent tapestry of memories as she continues to work her way through the loops and twists that are part of life.
