I Belong Project | Meet the Kids (March)

The I Belong Project™ is dedicated to uplifting the stories and voices of kids in foster care who are legally free for adoption. Each month, the project hosts pop-up photo and video shoots that transform a day into an unforgettable experience for all involved. This initiative goes beyond capturing photos and videos; it offers a day filled with fun, play, and the chance for kids to just be themselves. By sharing their stories with dignity and respect, the I Belong Project™ hopes to connect these incredible children with loving families. This month, we are thrilled to introduce 17 wonderful kids who are part of the I Belong Project™. Each one has a unique story, and we are honored to share a glimpse into their lives.
