Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
It's the end of our week here in Florida, and we'll be heading back to New York tomorrow. I'm really going to be sad to say goodbye to this beautiful area, but I'm excited that the next time we come down will be to move here.
Yesterday was fantastic! As I said, we went to Magic Kingdom for my graduation present. We spent thirteen hours in Disney, leaving the park right before it closed at 1:00am. When we first arrived, we happened to walk into Town Square right before a parade began. It was great and definitely put us in a fantastic mood. Then we went to get a celebration button for me ("I'm celebrating college grad") and then my parents bought me a graduation cap that said "Class of 2015" with Mickey ears on it. I wore the hat and pin all day and received many congratulations throughout the day from Disney cast members. It was so nice! Right before we left at night (or should I say the next morning?) we saw the Electrical Parade, and two of the donkey boys from Pinocchio came up to my sisters and brother and I to say hello. They made a big whoop-de-do about my upcoming graduation and high-fived us all. It was so sweet!
We got to go on so many rides and walk throughout most of the park (Adventureland, Tomorrowland, & Fantasyland). We even surprised my littlest sisters at the end of the night... We waited on a long line (over an hour I believe) for a "surprise" and when we walked through the doors at the end, we got to meet Elsa and Anna from Frozen. The girls were thrilled!! They were absolutely awed and starstruck. It was adorable. Definitely worth the long and exhausting wait.
So now tomorrow we get ready to go back home... We figure out what we're doing with the housing situation, we pack up, we stop for souvenirs, and we hit the road. Oh, and we keep our fingers crossed that spring has arrived by the time we get back to New York. It sure is going to be difficult to leave this beautiful weather!!

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.
