Have you been to Southgate Mall recently? Did you notice the large lighted posters of children on display? Did you stop and read about them – about how they are all children currently available for adoption?

The display is called the Heart Gallery, and it’s meant to draw attention to children in need of forever homes by drawing attention to a handful of individual kids. It has been on display throughout the month of November because November is National Adoption Month.

Read more about the Heart Gallery and Montana’s foster care children in Coral Beck’s recent guest opinion piece in the Missoulian. Coral Beck works in Missoula, and is the Western region administrator for the Child and Family Services Division of the Department of Public Health and Human Services.

She notes that you can get more information about Montana’s adoption process by calling 1-866-9FOSTER (1-866-936-7837).
