Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
It's late, and I got called in to work unexpectedly today so I'm kind of tired, which means that I'm keeping this blog post short and sweet... I bet my parents are wishing I would keep conversations that way as well!
I am just extremely excited to announce that I received a new name tag for work that shows that I can sign with Guests! Now, as I mentioned when I first got my original name tag, I can't post pictures of anything work related, but since my name tag is public knowledge, I wanted to share it.
Now, at the bottom of my name tag, there is a picture showing the signs for the letters "S" and "L" which mean sign language. Any Guest who looks at my name tag will know that I can sign with them, should they need me to. I'm so excited to finally have this name tag and I'm looking forward to hopefully signing with Guests in the future.
I actually had to go down this morning and take a "test" just to prove that I do indeed know sign language, and I was kind of nervous about it. I was even more nervous when I realized how fast the interpreter (with whom I was taking the test) was signing. I didn't have a problem though, and was able to get through the conversation with ease. It felt amazing when she told me that I had passed!
Now I can finally feel like I'm using something that I went to school for at least!
Your continued support means the world to me. From foster care to novels, and family to work experiences, I look forward to sharing more of my life with you each day. Don't hesitate to share your own stories with me or ask me questions about my life. 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.
