Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Only one more day until we get internet! Thank goodness! But in the meantime, at least we're getting a lot accomplished and spending time together as a family. We put on more home movies tonight (we actually just watched a movie of one-year-old me watching a movie of six-month-old me, which was pretty funny). Then today, we got to use our new pool for the first time!
We never had our own pool before, unless you could those ones you blow up that adults barely fit in. Now we have a beautiful in-ground pool and we were excited to finally use it. We were swimming for over two and a half hours before we realized any length of time had passed. It was great! Plus, the pool was 90 degrees, so it was nice and warm. I'm loving this new house!
Unfortunately, without Internet and easy use of my laptop, I've had to skip Foster Parent Fridays for the past two weeks. Next week, I'll be featuring another interview, but I believe I only have two more interviews to feature. If you're interested in answering some questions about your Foster care experience, please use the contact page to reach me. I would also be interested in featuring interviews from former foster children or from people who were in my situation as a biological child in a foster family.
I only have five days to reach my goal of 150 likes on my Facebook author page by the time I'm celebrating a year of blogging on July 29th. I'm happy to announce that I've made it past the 110 mark, but I still need 39 people to hit that "like" button and I would be really grateful to everyone if you could like and share my page. It's as simple as clicking the two buttons at the top right of any blog page, so it only takes a few seconds of your time! As I've mentioned before, when I reach 150 likes, I will share information about the novel that I've been working on, so I'm really excited to hit that milestone!
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.
