Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Tonight is a celebration of my parents: their 26th wedding anniversary! Alright, so they didn't do anything romantic, but I'm still impressed that they've been together for so long and are still going strong.
Last year, for their 25th anniversary, I planned a surprise party for my parents. Since my brother was still talking to the family back then, I was very fortunate to have his financial help. So many friends and family members came to help us celebrate how wonderful my parents are; it was truly amazing.
My parents never do anything for themselves. As I hope I have made clear through these blog posts, my parents are very giving people who are always looking out for others and taking care of those in need. I believe that it takes very special people to take in children from horrible home situations and turn their lives around for the better. I'm so proud to know that my parents have made a difference in this world over the course of their marriage.
Here's a throwback to the cake I made for the party last year. It was a really great time, and I wish I could have had a major celebration for my parents again... I guess we'll just have to wait until it's time to celebrate their 50th!
Before I end for tonight, I'd like to share a link with everyone. I recently came across a website that allows you to have a bunch of people share a link at the same time to promote the same thing. It's called a Thunderclap, and I created one in hopes of spreading the word about Taylor Talks. If you'd like to help me out, all you have to do is click on the link for my Thunderclap and then sign in using Facebook, Twitter, and/or Tumbler. Then on the tenth anniversary of my blog (May 29th), if (and only if) I have 100 supporters signed up to help, a mass message will go out with the link for my blog and a brief message about what Taylor Talks is. So I'd greatly appreciate it if you would check it out and log in to help me spread the word. The message will only go out if I have 100 supporters signed up to help. If you have any questions about it, just ask me in a comment below. Thanks in advance for your help!
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.
