Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Wow, I've been blogging for a year and three months already! That just seems incredible to me... how has that much time passed since my very first post?!
Even though I've been blogging for such a long time, I'm not even close to being perfect. In fact, I mess up quite frequently. I find typos that I have to go back in and edit right after I post something, or I forget to think of a good topic and find myself rushing to post at the very end of the night. Just yesterday, I completely screwed up a key point in my post, but I was very lucky that my mom caught the error and helped me out by addressing it in a comment. If you read yesterday's post, I'd advise you to go back and check out the comments, because apparently I didn't edit my post before (or after) publishing it. Hey, what are you gonna do? Even writers mess up sometimes.
The good news though, is that even if I messed up yesterday's post, I didn't mess up my work forms that I was filling out. To top that, I actually finished filling out all of my forms, which means that I'm all ready to be able to take my next steps. Halfway through November I'll go in to finish some paperwork in person, and then I'll be all ready to start work!
In the meantime, I'm keeping busy with my sign language classes, and actually just started with two new students tonight. I'm so glad that I've consistently been able to keep teaching, because as one session ends, another one starts up. I haven't had to juggle too many classes at one time, but I've been able to keep meeting and working with students of all ages, and use my knowledge of sign language to make some money too. I'm really enjoying being a sign language teacher, even if it's on an informal, small-business basis. I hope I can keep this up for a long time.
Alright, once again I'm posting late at night, and it's time for me to get to sleep... I need to be at the elementary school early tomorrow to help out in my little sisters' classroom! Wish me luck; it's going to be messy! Apparently there's a project that involves frosting. Kindergarten and frosting can be a scary combination!
Thank you so much for your continued support! I look forward to sharing more stories about my experience with foster care, and hopefully hearing from readers who have questions or similar stories to share. I'm always willing to answer questions and hear about other experiences! Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!
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.
