* After the events of their miniseries, most of the ComicBook/{{Runaways}} ended up in Foster care (except for Molly, who went to an XMen run [[OrphanageOfLove orphanage]] instead). While they were all treated well enough, they all decided that, after what they went through, they really cant go back to normal life. That, combined with the fact that [[FireForgedFriend they had all gotten]] [[TrueCompanions extremely close,]] inspired them to run away [[AndTheAdventureContinues all over again.]]

* ''Movies/XMenFirstClass'' series [[http://archiveofourown.org/series/82162 Stars from Home]] has Ororo in this situation, while Scott is HappilyAdopted, both with [[GoodParents Charles and Ruth]]. They're treated the same and refer to each other as [[LikeBrotherAndSister brother and sister]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Bart, Lisa, and Maggie were once placed in a loving if extremely weird (to them) family: The Flanderses. [[StatusQuoIsGod They were back with Homer and Marge by the end]], once the Simpson parents took a parenting class that was [[BumblingDad tough for Homer]] and humiliating for Marge.

* [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Clark Kent]] and LoisLane had a foster son, Chris, who was HappilyAdopted. Arguably doesn't count, however, since he was actually a Kryptonian stranded on Earth and the legal work was actually forged by Franchise/{{Batman}}.

Added DiffLines:

* On ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark,'' Kenny and his sister are removed from their drunken, drug-dealing parents and sent to a foster home with about a dozen other children, headed by a pair of abusive, fundamentalist agnostics (no, that's not a typo). Cartman later frames his mom for dealing drugs, under the false impression that he'll be taken in by some rich family, and winds up in the same place. The DepartmentOfChildDisservices is actually semi-competent here, with their case worker [[WhatHaveIDone horrified when he realizes how bad the place is]].

* In the German novel ''Gottes Bodenpersonal: Eine Unwahrscheinliche Liebesgeschichte'', the two male protagonists foster a teen boy who has been living on the streets for most of his life. He originally lived on the streets because he didn't want a foster family, suspecting that he would be sexually abused there. [[spoiler: He decided that if he was to be sexually abused by adult men, he could as well take money for it, and lived as street prostitute. He met his future foster father by propositioning him, and the polite rejection of this offer and subsequent attempt to help him get out of prostitution was what made him trust the man.]]
