The Maine Heart Gallery is a photo exhibit of children in Maine, who are waiting for their forever family, with the goal of connecting families and children together. A Family for ME is a partnership between the Maine Department of Health and Human Services and Spurwink Services, and is responsible for the Maine Heart Gallery. Here in Maine, there are approximately 100 children waiting for their adoptive family. Could you be their forever family?
