Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Happy June everyone! Wow, it's the last month of school for my siblings, and I can't believe that just next month we'll be moving from New York to Florida! Time has flown by!
So tonight, I wanted to talk about a new series that I'll be featuring on Taylor Talks. I'm calling it 'Foster Parent Friday' and I will be featuring a series of interviews with other foster parents.
I thought that it might be helpful for some newer foster parents, and people looking into becoming foster parents, to see some other perspectives. These interviews will feature people from all over the world, from right here in New York, all the way to Australia! This won't become a regular thing, but every once in a while I will feature one of these foster parent interviews in a Friday post.
I also just wanted to mention that I might not specifically write it in each post, but I hope that everyone realizes that I only post my opinion on foster care. I know some facts for certain, but sometimes I'm just writing about how I feel in different situations. I hope everyone takes that into account; I'm always willing to help you find websites to find out more specific information about foster care in your area.
I'd like to end tonight with something that I wrote earlier. I think that it is so important for people to realize how amazing the foster care journey is; there are plenty of bumps along the way, but it is so beautiful to watch a child learn and grow while in your care (or, you know, your parents' care... Whatever your case may be... I like watching as my parents have an influence on the kids we take in).
I'm now only three people away from hitting 100 likes on my Facebook author page! I'd really love it if you would support my writing career by taking a few seconds and liking the page yourself. Thanks so much!
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.
