Sabec FamilyThis exhibition celebrates the strength of humanity and depicts stories of transformation. The story starts with photos of children and youth that have survived difficult circumstances who have longed for a family of their own. It transforms into photos of families that have adopted children and youth when they are given a chance to be a part of something permanent and important…a family. The exhibition includes approximately 50 heartwarming photographs of families and children whose lives have been brought together through adoption. Each photograph is accompanied by a personal profile in the voice of the parents and children. This exhibition is organized by The Bay Area Heart Gallery which is a collaboration of four member agencies that serve children and youth in foster care across the Bay Area.
