Even Superman had foster parents

Yes! They were Fostered or Adopted.


Ok so I was sitting around watching the NERD stuff that we always watch. You know, Comic movies, Star Wars, Cartoons. I sensed a theme in all of them. Adoption or Foster Care. So I started running down the list of all those characters who were fostered or adopted.


Billy Batson or SHAZAM was a Foster child.

Spiderman, (Peter Parker was raised by his aunt and Uncle after his parents were killed when he was a child.

Batman was raised by his Butler Alfred and then later became a Foster Parent when he took in Robin.

Luke and Leia Skywalker were raised by other families and went on to save the universe.

Star lord was raised by Yondu

Barry Allen or The Flash was raised by The West Family

Superman was adopted.

I could go on and on. But when I was talking with my kids and Foster kids, I pointed out that they can become anything they want to.

These superheroes slowly come to realize that they not only have superpowers and abilities, but that they have become part of a family. Each family loved and cared for them and tried to give them a better life.

The love of a family can give you hope and the ability to become your own superhero. Even if it’s just for a short period of time.

SHAZAM only needed one word to become one, and with Foster kids it only take one word. Love.

So if you are wanting to help the superheroes of tomorrow and give them help, and strength and love. Feel free to contact us and we would be more than willing to talk to you about becoming a Foster Parent.
