Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I'm with family during the break between the services for our cousin tonight. While it's amazing to see everyone, the circumstances are sad.
What's really nice about my family is that after the initial tears are cried over the loss of a loved one, then everyone can't help but laugh and have a good time together. It must be the Irish partier in everyone, because our family is big, loud, and rambunctious. All I can hear are hearty laughs coming from every group conversation around the house and back porch.
It's sad that everyone always talks about getting together, but life somehow keeps getting in the way, and it takes a tragedy to get us all together again. But I love to see anyone, even if the amount of times I hear, "How old are you now?" makes me want to change my age! It's nice to hear about what's happening in everyone's lives and see how things have changed since the last time we saw each other.
I still haven't cried yet, but I'm sure tomorrow will be more of a time for mourning when we're at the funeral. Right now, I'm just enjoying being around family and catching up between the condolences. I'd better get back to everyone!
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.
