Welcome to the Arkansas
 Heart Gallery Website

Arkansas' website is a collaborative effort with our local community partners and the Arkansas Department of Human Services, Division of Children and Family Services. We wish to extend a special thank-you to the professional photographers around the state who have contributed their time and efforts to capture the individuality, smile, and inner beauty of our waiting children and our community partners who make the children feel special during their portrait session.

About Our Children

Some of the children featured may have developmental, physical, emotional or behavioral challenges and others may not. Some of the children may be members of a sibling group or older youth. They are all children who want and need a family.


Our mission is to introduce these children to prospective adoptive families and the concept of adopting older children, sibling groups or children with special needs. Our goal is to find a family for every child.


There have been many success stories attributed to our adoption website. Some of those successes include placement of three older siblings after years of waiting, placement of a sibling group of six, severely physically handicapped children and those with mental disabilities.

Thank you for visiting our website.
