Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today is a very special day in my house and I couldn't let it go by without publicly acknowledging the incredible man we are honoring.
Forty years ago today, my dad became a plumber with the union in New York City.
For the past four decades, he has been working hard to support not only himself, but his growing family as well. He has provided us with so much throughout the years, allowing my mom to stay home with all of us and never letting us want for anything.
I can't even imagine being in a field you love for forty years. It's an absolutely amazing accomplishment. I am so proud of my dad, as is the rest of the family. We are so lucky to have him.
My dad has not only been dedicated to his job for so long, but he has been dedicated to showing us what hard work looks like as well. He has been such a wonderful role model for my siblings and me. He has shown us what it means to be dedicated to your job, to always giving your best and never giving up when times get tough. He has shown us passion and how to support your loved ones. He is the best dad and working role model I could ever want and I am so very lucky that he's mine. I am so proud of my dad for this wonderful accomplishment and I hope he knows that we are all so thrilled for him.
Congratulations on an incredible forty years, Dad!! I love you!

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.
