Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today is a special day on which we remember my grandpa: his birthday.
It's been so many years since I was able to celebrate his birthday with him, and I always wish that my siblings could have celebrated with him as well. He was such a fantastic man, and I don't just say that because he was my grandpa (although I'm definitely biased in my opinion!)...
Everyone who knew my grandpa always tells me what a wonderful person he was. Whether it's family members on my mom's side of the family who were related to my grandpa, or my dad's family members who met him after my parents were dating, or family friends who knew him in some capacity, everyone has a loving, funny, or heart-warming story about my grandpa.
I think about my grandpa every day, and while I always wish that I could have had more time with him, I cherish the memories from the five years that we did have together. I just found a new group of photos from when I was little, and it was great to look through them and relive some old memories. And of course, when we first moved into the house, we were watching old home movies which was nice because I got to see my grandpa, and I had been having trouble remembering his voice so it was nice to hear what he sounded like again.
Happy birthday Grandpa!
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.
