Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Tonight, I thought I would just touch a little on the different foster care agencies that exist. Some people may not realize that there are different agencies out there.
My parents are licensed through the New York State agency. The children that we take in, however, just come from all over our county. DSS tries to keep children as close to home as possible because of things like parent visits and court hearings and such. There are state agencies all over the United States, and I'm sure there are similar agencies in other countries as well.
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.
