Steve Jobs is co-founder and CEO of Apple Computer, industry leader with the award winning Macintosh computers as well as the popular iPod and iTunes, and iPhone. He is also co-founder and CEO of Pixar Studios, winning over 20 Academy Awards for its animated films including: Toy Story, A Bugs Life, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, Cars, and Ratatouille.

“I was born in San Francisco, California, USA, planet Earth, February 24, 1955” Jobs told the Smithsonian in an interview. His birth mother was single and in the 50’s, young women who gave birth “out of wedlock” were shamed into giving their babies up for adoption. Paul and Clara Jobs adopted Steve soon after his birth and raised him in California’s “silicon valley”.

Steve Jobs grew up a free spirit with a love of mischief. He challenged and defied his teachers, caused trouble and was suspended many times and finally expelled. He was also very smart, skipped a couple of grades and developed an intense curiosity about electronics.

Teamed up with his high school friend the electronic genius Steve Wozniak, Jobs began selling the computers they assembled in his garage, eventually revolutionizing the computer industry and making Jobs a multimillionaire before he was 30. Factoids: Steve tracked down his younger biological sister - the author Mona Simpson - and now counts her as one of his best friends On his biological father’s side, Steve is reportedly of Egyptian Arab descent. Steve usually wears jeans with a black turtleneck and running shoes. Jobs is usually a vegetarian - although he reportedly eats fish from time to time.

Anonymous's picture

At that time, the baby would be placed in the adoptive family's home after birth and a foster care or other child welfare agency would visit, monitor, and report to the family court until the adoption was finalized. They likely weren't pre-certified foster parents but probably private adoptive parents whose case was assisted by a foster care agency at the request of the family court.

Anonymous's picture

Adopted people are not always Foster Youth. Did Steve actually live in a foster home before he was adopted? Or solely with his mother and then the adopted family? I ask, as a foster youth myself.
