These celebrities are showing that family comes in several different ways. Were you aware that there are currently 400,000 children in the foster care system in the United States? That’s a staggering number of kids wanting a clean, stable, and loving home. May marks Foster Care Month that seeks to shine a spotlight on a system that needs more loving parents and families willing to open their hearts and homes to these kids.
Marilyn Monroe, Tiffany Haddish, and Greg Louganis are only three examples of celebrities who were in foster care as children, but there are still many famous people who fostered children (some adopted through foster care), showing that family is not about a biological bond, but about feeling, kindness, and affection.
