Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Tell me a fun fact about your life.
What would your response be if someone said that to you?
My entire life, I've always used the same fun fact when asked to share something interesting about my life. Class introductions, meeting new people in any kind of environment... you ask me for a fun fact, I have my answer prepared.
I've had nineteen foster siblings, five of whom have been adopted by my parents.
I mean, hey, wouldn't you use that if it applied to you?
Well, in my location at work, we do this little interview series each week to get to know things about one another that may not come up in daily conversation. I was chosen as one of the people to be featured this coming week, so I sat down to answer the interview questions today.
What was the very first question? You guessed it...
Here's the problem though: everyone in my location already knows about my nineteen siblings! Come on, you don't get featured in a magazine without everyone knowing about it! So while that was extremely awesome, it left me in a weird place; for the first time in my life, I couldn't use my go-to fun fact.
I actually had to end up answering all of the other questions before circling back to a fun fact about my life. This simple question really stumped me. In the end though, I decided to talk about the fact that I have two children's books on Amazon and I'm working on publishing my first novel. Not a lot of people at work actually know that I'm a writer, so once I realized that, my fun fact became pretty clear.
So tell me, do you have any go-to fun facts about your life? Or does this question not seem as difficult to everyone else? Let me know in the comments (remember, you don't need to leave an email to post a comment)!
I'd greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites.

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.
