Open your heart. Open your home. That’s the message Children Awaiting Parents (CAP) seeks to share at the Judge Wagner 2019 Heart Gallery—a photography display of children in need of adoptive families, on view during National Adoption Month in November. Portraits taken by volunteer photographers capture each child’s unique personality.
