We all have childhood memories of curling up in front of the TV on Saturday mornings with a bowl of cereal, eager to discover how Spiderman would save the world this time; how the Ninja Turtles would defeat the evil Shredder; or how Batman and Robin would defend Gotham City from yet another villain seeking to exact his evil plan on unsuspecting citizens. The idea of superheroes has always been enchanting; a person strong enough to swoop in, save the day, and protect you from anything and everything.
As we get older, we are presented with the possibility that superheroes don’t actually exist in the real world. But if you work in the child welfare field, you discover superheroes in a somewhat similar fashion. We have had the privilege of sighting some of these superheroes firsthand, but true to their form, they have assumed secret identities and pose as Everyday Heroes; we know them as Foster Parents.
Several of our KVC offices across Kansas have gone out in the community to educate others about how they can become Everyday Heroes. Clothed in masks and capes and armed with information about KVC, superheroes hit the streets to spread the word.
