Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
It's the first day of Winter, but I don't think that Florida got the memo...
I had to borrow this picture that my mom took the other day of this week's forecast for our area. I cannot believe that it's going to be in the 80s on Christmas!
It's going to be a crazy week as we count down to the big day, but everyone is excited to celebrate. One of my favorite parts of Christmas is (you'll never guess) the Disney parade that airs each Christmas morning. I absolutely love sitting down with my family and watching for my favorite characters, hearing holiday tunes performed in front of the castle, and learning about what new things Disney has planned for the upcoming year. Of course, I'm hoping to be getting some inside scoop now that I've officially earned my ears, but it will still be fun to watch!
Tonight I broke the news to my siblings that I won't be home on Christmas Eve, and they were pretty bummed out. The twins told me that I'm their sister and I'm part of the family so I need to be here, which really made me feel guilty. I know that there's no real way to explain work to them at this age, but hopefully being home for Christmas Day will make up for missing out on our Christmas Eve traditions.
I also have a pretty big surprise planned for Christmas, which I hope my siblings will love. I wasn't going to tell anyone about it, but I finally had to tell my mom today. I got her approval to give this surprise (although she tried to take back that approval when I refused to give her more than the absolutely necessary information), so I can't wait! My dad will be surprised as well, so it should be fun.
Now I do have work for the next three days in a row, so I may have to post earlier in the day at some point, depending on my schedule. I have faith in myself that I'll be able to continue posting daily though, even when working long hours. Wish me luck!
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.
