Burning River Brass

“As good as it gets.” –The Washington Times

“These musicians are virtuosos.” —The Cleveland Plain Dealer

"… the evening was a delight from start to finish." - Anchorage Daily News

“It was one of those performances where you smile from the sound of the first note and you only feel badly when you hear the last number and you realize that it has to end.” — The Charleston (WV) Gazette

The Moving Hearts Gallery

The Cuyahoga County Department of Children and Family Service (CCDCFS) and Adoption Network Cleveland have partnered to bring you a wonderful photographic exhibit to warm your heart and move you to action.

CCDCFS is Ohio's largest child welfare agency. Its mission is to protect children at risk of abuse and neglect, with the support of the community.

Adoption Network Cleveland is a non-profit organization providing support, education and advocacy for adoptees, birthparents, adoptive parents, foster parents and youth, foster care alumni and related professionals.

"Together we embrace the vision of every child in a safe, supportive, stable and loving family."

The Gallery showcases the character, warmth and charm of children whose special need is that they don't have a family to call their own.

The children you will see in this gallery are older and some are here with their siblings and need to be adopted together. These children and others like them have been waiting for a permanent family with whom to love, laugh and grow. They want what every child wants: structure, safety, love and the knowledge that no matter what, with you, they have found home and family. Let your heart be moved by these children and perhaps move you to action.
