Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I’ve calmed down a bit since my long rant yesterday, but I am still extremely angry about this whole situation.
I realized that I didn’t write about a key part of this situation, which I’d like to touch on now. We haven’t told any of my siblings about this situation yet. We found out that my littlest sister is leaving our home forever next week, and we haven’t told anyone yet. I’m not sure if my mom told my dad, because I didn’t talk to him about it, but my siblings definitely don’t know anything yet.
My mom said that she’s debating about when she wants to tell everyone. She’s thinking that maybe she’ll wait until Friday, so that Thanksgiving isn’t ruined for everyone. But she’s also wondering if she should just tell everyone while we’re sitting down for dinner tomorrow, because then everyone will cherish this last holiday with our little sister. I don’t know what’s going to happen. No matter when my mom tells everyone, it’s going to be rough. We haven’t gone through this in a long time, so it’s going to be upsetting. There’s no “good” time for any of this.
Wish us luck…

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.
