Heart Gallery Encourages Adoption Through Art

| No TrackBacks

Foster children in Texas will find themselves on the wall of an art exhibit this Thursday with an art-exhibit style gallery at the Renaissance Austin Hotel. TWEAN News Channel of Austin reports that the gallery project was launched by the Central Texas organizations Adoption Coalition of Texas and CASA and that the goal of the project is to ultimately find foster children a permanent home.

The Heart Gallery of Central Texas will essentially feature professional portraits of children in foster care who are waiting to be adopted. The exhibit was put together by 60 renowned Central Texas photographers that volunteered their time. More than 140 children are featured in the works of art and in a video presentation titled "Beyond the Lens."

Perhaps art can inspire couples or individuals to start a family and adopt a child out of foster care. In the Lone Star state, a Houston family law attorney can provide prospective parents with information and resources about the process of adoption. While many attorneys agree that adopting a child out of foster care is one of the most rewarding types of adoption, there are special legal issues that can arise when adopting out of the foster care system. The best way to see what type of adoption is best for you, is to get informed.

The art exhibit at the Heart Gallery of Central Texas opens on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for the event can be purchased at the door or online at
