Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Tonight's post is dedicated to all of the amazing moms out there who work 24/7 to make the world a better place for their kids! Happy Mother's Day everyone! A very special shoutout to my own mom, who is without a doubt one of the most incredible people I know!
It takes a truly special woman to be a mommy, a mama, a ma, or a mom. It takes a commitment to love, guide, support, and cherish the children who have bestowed such a title upon you. There is no one who could take your place, because a mom's work is never done. And it takes a truly incredible woman to take in children from the roughest of life's situations and raise them as their own.
I'm so lucky to have my mom, and I don't know what I would do without her. She has raised twenty children, all without giving it a second thought. As one of her cousins put it yesterday, my mom may be addicted to having kids in the house, but I think she's actually addicted to helping those who need her the most. She's never afraid of a challenge, and her only motto in life is, "Don't **** with my kids!" On days like today, I think about how many children have come through our front door and called her 'Mom' because she had made such an impact on these kids.
So many moms out there have made an impact on the world through their children. Whether your kids be biological, foster, adopted, step, or a random collection of kiddos who depend on you, you're making the world a better place because of the children you are supporting. Congratulations to all of you moms for being the hardworking women that you are. Being a mom looks like the toughest job in the world; no other job lasts all day and night, has no time off, doesn't pay, and goes on for the rest of your life. Maybe us kids don't say thank you enough for all that you do, and one day a year just isn't enough to celebrate how incredible you are, but on behalf of children everywhere, thank you for all of your hard work!
Happy Mother's Day to one and all, especially to my incredible mom and the other amazing moms in my life!

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.
