Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
The 2015-2016 school year has officially started for the Krigsman family! My siblings went to their new schools for the first time today, and it was a big adjustment for everyone.
I've made it pretty clear that we've never moved before. Of course, all of my siblings lived elsewhere before being placed with my family, but none of them had ever gone to school prior to being part of our family. This was a big adjustment for everyone, and while there was a lot of excitement leading up to this morning, there were also a lot of nerves. I thought I would share what I thought were the biggest adjustments for my siblings...
I think that, overall, the first day of school in a new district in a new state went pretty well. Still, I hope that the kids feel much more comfortable over the course of the week, and that everyone finds some new friends soon.
Oh, I should also mention that my mom wanted the title of tonight's post to be "I am a liar" (or something along those lines). But honestly, I am looking forward to spending some one-on-one time with my mom! It just so happened that today we were completely exhausted, so I sat in my bedroom watching, and I'm ashamed to say this, three hours of How I Met Your Mother on Netflix. But now I finished the series (again... I also watched the entire nine seasons over winter break. Yes, I do have a problem and I will be the first to admit that), so maybe tomorrow my mom and I can actually talk and get some stuff done around the house. We'll see. I might fall asleep all day, because boy am I tired!
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.
