Photo gallery features foster kids at Mesa Mall
Heart Gallery, a display of professionally taken photos of children from across the state who are in foster care and have been waiting the longest for an adoptive family, can be seen through Tuesday, April 2, at the Mesa Mall in the Target wing in the former Bonworth location.
In Mesa County, there are approximately 20 children each year who become available for adoption through the Mesa County Department of Human Services and are in need of a permanent and stable home. These children are generally older than 7 and may have developmental, medical or other special needs. They may be part of a sibling group or have ethnically diverse backgrounds.
