The Michigan Heart Gallery is a traveling photographic exhibit featuring photos of youth currently in the foster care system waiting for their forever family.  MARE worked with over 50 professional photographers from all across the state to make this year's 2016 display possible. The display will showcase 120 waiting youth

Right below is this year's feature film. The film includes: what adoption means to our youth, why you should adopt older children, and how you become a family through adoption.
