For Simone Biles, the 25-time World Championship medallist, life currently may look sweet as sugar, but her journey has been one of the hardest. At the tender age of three, she was under the ordeal of foster care.
Biles recently posted an ad video describing her early life in foster care and getting adopted. One fan wrote in response:
"Yes, be the voice for the voiceless # former foster youth"
In her most recent Instagram post, Simone Biles was seen addressing children in foster homes for an ad video. Fans were happy to see her and posted several comments full of admiration.

"I like you, Simone Biles! You’re special for so many reasons other than you being the best gymnast who has ever competed!"
These fans say they did not know Simone Biles was a foster kid once:
"i didn't know you were in foster care. i am too"

Another fan feels that Biles' fiance, Jonathan Owens, is a lucky guy to have her, and he also said he would have dated her if she was single:
