Exhibit to feature photos of children waiting for adoption

News

MILFORD, Conn. (AP) – Connecticut’s Department of Children and Families is using Valentine’s Day to open an exhibit of photographs featuring children waiting to be adopted.

The Heart Gallery exhibit opens Wednesday at the Connecticut Post Mall in Milford.

Agency officials say it’s an opportunity to increase awareness and hopefully interest in adoption.

A phone app, called “Live Portrait” will allow those viewing the exhibit to get information and videos of the children featured in the photographs.

Agency officials say a brother and sister who were to appear in the exhibit ended up being adopted by a woman who had volunteered as a Heart Gallery photographer. She will speak about her experiences at the exhibit’s opening.
