I found out about Tiny Superheroes through the Ichthyosis community. Kids in capes kept on popping up on my social media feeds. And my heart melted at the photos. So beautiful! Here's Evan and Bruli playing the piano.
And Evan flying. The cuteness.
Robyn from Tiny Superheroes says that the initiative started after reading Blessed By Brenna. She sewed capes for her son and nephew, and her husband suggested that Brenna needs a cape too! Since then, she and the Tiny Superhero sewing team has sewn and donated over 100 capes to little children with illness and disabilities. Robyn says these children with illnesses and disabilities are "Extraordinary TinySuperheroes who exemplify strength and determination as they overcome great adversity."
From the Tiny Superheroes website:
"TinySuperheroes seeks to empower our little ones — one cape at a time. We donate capes to Extraordinary TinySuperheroes who exemplify strength and determination as they overcome great adversity. Once these Extraordinary TinySuperheroes are comfortable in their new capes, we feature them on our blog, in hopes of giving them a voice, their illness or disability a face, and the world the opportunity to stretch."
Below is Lauren and Evan - both with Ichthyosis. Adorable!Anthony, Issac and Kenji. (Photos used with permission from Tiny Superheroes.)
It was perfect cape flapping weather! I went to infinity and beyond!
These small acts of kindness by Tiny Superheroes are making children across the world feel ten feet tall.
