Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today, we celebrated my little brother's birthday! I guess he's not quite so little anymore!
My little brother has been living with us since two weeks after his second birthday, and today he turned twelve years old. I can't even remember what life was like before he was part of the family. I do remember how close we've always been though, because my dad used to say that my brother wouldn't be able to walk properly since I carried him everywhere.
When we were younger, everyone used to say that I was like a second mother to my little brother. We've always had this special connection between the two of us, and even though he's getting older and we don't sit and cuddle anymore, I still love getting in those bedtime hugs. I know that we only have a year now before he becomes a teenager, so I'm really cherishing what's left of his childhood.
Happy birthday to my amazing little brother!

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.
