Got a foster kid in Boy Scouts? Let your boys know that a foster kid grew up and became the “father” of the Boy Scouts. His name was James West.
Six-year-old James entered into state care after his father died and his mom became ill with tuberculosis. James grew up in an orphanage rather than with a foster family. Even though James was crippled with one leg shorter than the other, he ran the Boy Scouts and turned it into the organization it is today. He even stood up for black boys, allowing them to join the Scouts during a time when whites and blacks were segregated.
Cool, huh? Wonder what amazing things your foster kiddos will do.
