Heart Gallery helps two brothers find stability with Miramar family

 "Nearly 30 people crowded into a room at the Broward County Courthouse on Monday to celebrate the Heart Gallery's 100th and 101st adoptions.

The gallery, which began in 2005, is a nonprofit organization that helps find homes for children by having volunteer photographers take pictures of them for display around Broward County..."

"It's as if we knew each other, Marta DePasquale said of the two brothers. "

Another Adoption!

JessicaJessica, 13, Photo by Dana Lunden - Photos by Design ... FOUND A FAMILY!

We were recently alerted that this friendly and outgoing teen found her family through the Heart Gallery Tampa Bay.






A note from her new adoptive mother:

Dear Jesse,

We could not imagine our home without Jessica in it now. We are truly blessed by having been given this opportunity! The heart gallery was our first awareness's of the foster care system in Hillsborough County so please keep it going! This is a fantastic way to show the public a great need that they can get involved with!

Wherever you can use us to show the extreme value of the Heart Gallery and how blessed we were by it and Camelot, just let us know.

Jessica also tells us she is always available to sign autographs when requested......(see what a publicly displayed beautiful picture will do to the ego of a 13 year old girl?? Haha)

We took Jessica this weekend to the Brandon Mall and got pictures of her standing beside her picture. We'll be adding this to her scrapbook. We "borrowed" a match ribbon from another child's picture for just a moment because she wanted it taken with her to show she found a family.

Please don't ever stop believing in what you do each and every day for these children and for families like ours. I truly believe God was having a wonderful day when he designed all of you!

My husband and I also took a moment to see all the new faces while we were there. Maybe our family will be growing again one day soon...... :-)

We have found this program beneficial in finding families for our children. We ask that as you view the children, consider that they live in our communities. Respect their right to privacy, and be aware that they may attend school or church, or play at the local park with your children and relatives. The availability of their pictures leaves our children recognizable and vulnerable to negative attention. Although we strive to protect them, we need your help. Thank you!
