Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Yesterday I wrote that our family friends were finally coming home after serving in Afghanistan with the National Guard. I’m happy to report that they’re now home and doing well, and everyone is happy to have them back!
There were so many flight delays and cancellations last night because of bad weather, and we were nervous that they wouldn’t be able to come home last night. Instead of coming home at 10pm to an airport the next town over, they came home at 12:50am to an airport almost 2 hours away. Everyone was exhausted, especially my little sisters, but we all perked up when we saw our friends coming through the gate at the airport. Of course, none of my siblings went to school today because we didn’t get home until 3:30am, but it was well worth the day off to welcome home our heroes.
Have you ever had the privilege of welcoming home soldiers? Tell me about it in the comments!
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.
