Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I have to take a break from writing about foster care to just talk about the little adventure that my mom, my littlest sisters, and I went on this evening with some close family friends. We went to look at dresses for my little sisters... They're going to be flower girls!
A family friend of ours is going to be getting married in a few months, and we've known her since she was in fourth grade. Since our families are so close, and she's known my little sisters since they came home from the hospital, she asked my mom if the girls could be her flower girls. I don't know if they really understand what their job entails yet, but I'm really excited for them.
The girls tried on a few different dresses, and of course I thought that they looked adorable in all of them, but when the bride made her final decision, we all agreed that the dresses were perfect. It was funny, because one twin was happy to twirl around and show off the dresses, while the other was shy and hugging my mom's leg the whole time. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that they're not shy the day of the wedding and that they'll walk down the aisle together, throw some flower petals, and smile for the pictures.
I remember being a flower girl when I was three, and I hope that the girls have as much fun as I did. I can't wait to see how their big responsibilities as flower girls unfold on the day of the wedding!

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.
