Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I know that I have readers from different countries, but to those here in the United States, I'd like to wish you a Happy Independence Day! Here in America, people have been celebrating the anniversary of our country's independence in a whirlwind of red, white, and blue.
Unfortunately, there were no fireworks happening in our area tonight (odd, right?), but we wouldn't have been able to go anyway. It was another day of packing for us, and now we have an entire room devoted only to boxes. It's madness here. We are going to a bar-be-que at a friend's house tomorrow though, so we can take a break from packing and have a good time then.
I did manage to get a few minutes to sit in a room alone, which is always very surprising, so I thought that I would put up a video to celebrate the 4th of July. I hope you'll enjoy my American Sign Language interpretation of Lee Greenwood's "God Bless The U.S.A." by clicking on the video below!
I hope you enjoyed the video! I'd also like to give a special mention to my grandmother, who we remember today on the anniversary of her death. I never had the chance to meet her, but my dad says that she would have loved my mom and all of us kids.... I think she would have been a wonderful grandma.
My goal is to reach 150 likes on my Facebook author page by the time I'm celebrating a year of blogging on July 29th, and it would mean so much to me if everyone could like and share my page. It's as simple as clicking the two buttons at the top right of any blog page, so it only takes a few seconds of your time! As I've mentioned before, when I reach 150 likes, I will share information about the novel that I've been working on, so I'm really excited to hit that milestone!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
