Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
It's really amazing how much can change in the span of a year! On a day to day basis, it can be hard to notice how much change you're actually experiencing, but when you reflect on how far life has taken you over the course of a year, you realize just how much you've been through.
Today, we got together with some family friends. It's a group of moms (and families) that my mom got close with last year when all of their kids were in preschool together. It was a beautiful day to hang out, but seeing everyone together made me think about last summer when we would have all of these get-togethers.
Last year, my family had two more people in it than this year. My brother, of course, wants nothing to do with us, and my foster sister has since left our home. Last year, our friends had one less family member, but have since taken in their first foster child. And of course, all of the little kids have grown so much over the past year!
It was so nice to get together with everyone today, especially because we know we won't have many more gatherings before we move. This group of people is really wonderful, and I'm going to miss them all when we're in Florida. At least we have a little over a month left to keep seeing each other! Love you all CMC!!

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.
