Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today, I wanted to share a quote that I felt meant a lot in the context of foster care.
I think that all foster children need someone to look out for them, and give them the strength that they need to succeed in life. If no one supports these children as they grow, it will be harder to instill the confidence and the strength that they need in them when they are adults.
Foster children did nothing wrong to be placed in the system. They were victims of a hard life, and terrible circumstances, and they did not choose to end up in the foster care system. It is not their fault that they are placed in a home with people they do not know, so they need that family to look out for their best interest and give them a better life for as long as they can.
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.
