Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
It’s night two here at the hospital, and my poor little sister is still not back to normal. It’s been a long day and night, and we’re hoping that she’ll be released tomorrow morning.
I’m happy to report that my mom hasn’t had to explain my little sister’s entire background to anyone today… I guess today’s staff actually read through her files before coming into the room. Woo hoo!
Last night was crazy. I slept on the floor, and I’m pretty sure my mom slept sitting up on the little couch. We were woken up every two hours when my little sister had to get her medication, so we were all exhausted today. But all three of us were able to take a little nap this afternoon, and everyone’s spirits rose when we were able to Skype home and talk to everyone. It’s so sad seeing the twins separated, because they really don’t know what to do without each other. They both brightened up so much when they were able to video chat.
That’s about it for tonight. It’s almost 11:30pm and my little sister has so much built-up energy from being in bed all day that she’s still wide awake, so I better see if I can help entertain her. Hopefully tomorrow’s post will report that we’re all home and my sister is feeling well. Fingers crossed that her oxygen levels are totally raised in the morning!
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.
