Temple Terrace, Florida -- When many of us visit the local mall it's usually to buy something.  It's not the place you would expect to have your heart stolen.

But that's exactly what happened to Christie Enderle.  She's a Bay area mom who was at the mall one day when she stumbled upon a collection of beautiful photographs of children.

They were professional portraits of children who are in foster care in Florida.  The Heart Gallery of Tampa Bay displays the photographs hoping they will catch the eye of a loving family who is looking to adopt a child.

Those pictures not only caught Enderle's eye, they also captured her heart.

Enderle wanted to  share her emotional experience with the students at her daughters school. She did and it has had a lasting impact that no one could have imagined.

To see how the children at Florida College Academy opened their hearts to children in foster care, click on the video link.
