Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Merry Christmas! I hope that you all have enjoyed a wonderful day filled with family and joy, whether you celebrated with presents for little kids or just spent quality time with loved ones around the dinner table.
Our Christmas was pretty great here and I was glad to be home with my family today. After going to bed at 3:00am, my mom and I were exhausted when we had to get up at 7:00am with the kids. I was so glad that my dad kept the girls busy in their bedroom for a little while so that we had a few extra minutes to sleep, but it was still so early!
My parents supported me by buying copies of my book, "A Christmas For Toys," for each of my siblings. I wrote in each of them and the kids were able to read along with me when I read the book to them before bed tonight.
I also got to hand out my surprise gifts this morning... signs that announced that we're going to Disney World! I was lucky enough to be able to take my whole family to Magic Kingdom thanks to my new job, and everyone was so excited when they found out! We haven't picked a day to go yet, but I can't wait to go! I captured my siblings' reactions on video and their faces were just perfect!
It was a wonderful holiday, but I'm glad to be off to bed now... it's been a long day, and a long week, but the holidays always make me feel good. Merry Christmas everyone!
Thank you so much for your continued support! I look forward to sharing more stories about my experience with foster care, and hopefully hearing from readers who have questions or similar stories to share. I'm always willing to answer questions and hear about other experiences! Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!
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.
