Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
In case you've forgotten, this month is National Adoption Month. Earlier in November, I asked for readers to share their adoption stories with me. I wanted to showcase different adoption experiences over the course of this month in order to give readers a sense of how wonderful adoption is, and how many different ways one could go about adoption.
Tonight, I'm happy to share a story from one of my readers who has chosen to remain anonymous. She was concerned that it wasn't a typical adoption story, and wasn't sure if it was something that I was looking for, but I thought it was a wonderful story to share. Adoption comes in many forms and there is really no such thing as a typical adoption. I hope that everyone will enjoy reading this touching story.
I grew up in a biological family where my dad and his sister had been adopted back in the 1930s. I grew up knowing this and somehow it impressed me all the way back then. Because I grew up in a loving, caring Christian family, it was normal for us to help people: Neighbors, friends, church members, and strangers all got the same care from my parents.
I want to thank this reader for sharing her story with everyone. It was very touching, and I want to wish her the best of luck as she embarks on her foster care journey.
If you have an adoption story that you'd like to share with everyone, use my Contact page or send me a message through my author page on Facebook. I'm looking for all different kinds of adoption stories from parents, grandparents, children, siblings, family members, and friends. Share a story about your experience with:
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.
