Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
It's the first post of the new year! Here we are in 2016, and I can't believe that I haven't posted since last year! Alright, but in all seriousness, I can't believe that it's 2016 already and I'm excited to see what the next year will have in store!
My year is off to a fantastic start... I woke up to Twin B jumping on me exclaiming, "It's the afternoon, Yaya! You don't sleep in the afternoon!" Have I ever mentioned that the twins call me Yaya? We don't know why... anyway, yes, my sister was correct in her realization that I should have been awake by 1:00 in the afternoon, but my mom was nice enough to let me sleep in today after my long work days.
I didn't make it home in time to ring in the new year, but my mom put the New Year's Rockin' Eve countdown on when I got home and we celebrated late. I think the twins wished me a Happy New Year about twenty times over the course of the day, so even though we didn't actually do anything to celebrate this year, we recognized the occasion.
I truly missed being with my best friend for New Year's Eve, because we celebrated together every year since sixth grade, and this was the first year we weren't together. It was weird not having him at my house, and we usually had other friends over as well, so it was definitely different this year. But even though we didn't have a party this year, I was happy to ring in the new year and say goodbye to 2015.
There were definitely lots of ups and downs last year, so I'm looking forward to seeing what this new year has in store for me and my family. I hope that everyone had a great celebration, no matter what you did to ring in 2016!
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.
