A Virtual Art Walk With Kids Who’ve Inspired Us  

On January 31, many people celebrate “National Inspire Your Heart with Art Day” … and we’re inspired. Join us for an art walk with a few kids we’ve met through “A Family for Me.”

Common to each of their stories is time spent in foster care, resilience in the face of change, and creativity that inspires us all.

Like many of us, they’ve found art to be an important outlet in their lives, using it to express who they are or to learn more about the world.

It’s been our privilege to be advocates for these children and to help them share their stories, their passions, and their many talents.
