TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A certain gallery helped picture children in need.

The Indiana Heart Gallery is a travelling gallery that showcases foster children in the state. On Saturday, the group stopped by Indiana State University.

They showcased more than 100 pictures of children who face barriers to adoption.

They hope their appearance will inspire people to consider adoption.

“If they got adopted, they would have a forever family and they would have a place to call home permanently, and that’s a big thing for a kid who hasn’t had that,” said Stephanie Brooks, project coordinator.

Also at today’s event, members of the Autism Society for Indiana showed up. They were there to spread awareness of the condition growing throughout the state.

To view all of the children in the Indiana Heart Gallery, check out this link.
