Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today, I came home after almost a week at the house of one of my best friends (and former roommate). I arrived to an empty house, because my mom and siblings were moving my brother back into college. I missed all of the excitement, but got the house to myself for two hours, which is basically unheard of here! I caught up on some TV, relaxed with my dogs, and enjoyed the time alone.
When everyone arrived home, one of my little sisters came running through the door before my mom could even get everyone else out of the car. She was so excited that I was home, and my other siblings were just as happy when they walked in. It’s the little moments like this that really make me love being a member of my big, crazy family.
This year, I won’t be moving back to college. I will be living at home and commuting for the first time. I’m still uneasy about how this will work… I’m sure it’s going to be difficult fitting into the school routine that the rest of the family already has, but I’m hoping that it won’t be too hard to all work together in the mornings. My little sisters don’t understand that I’ll be living at home yet, so it’ll be fun to see their reactions when they realize that I come home every night.
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.
