Notable people who grew up in care.
There are many people who have left the care system to go onto achieve remarkable success. American icon Marilyn Monroe spent most of her childhood in foster homes in California.
Pierce Brosnan, who is best known as the 6th incarnation of James Bond, grew up in several forms of kinship care. In 2003 he was awarded an OBE for his “outstanding contribution to the British film industry”. The former CEO of Apple Steve Jobs also spent his infancy in foster care before being adopted.
These celebrities and their experiences in care should be used to inspire the belief amongst foster children that they can achieve anything!
