Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
It's the night before school ends and anywhere you go, there are children snug in beds and dreams of summer overflow.
Alright, not my best work, but you get the idea... tomorrow's the last day of school!
To be perfectly honest, my sister actually finished her last final on Friday, so she didn't have any school this week. And of course, I've been out since May. But for my youngest three siblings, tomorrow marks the end of the 2014-2015 school year, and with it, the last day of school here in New York. I am so proud of everything that all of my siblings have accomplished over the course of this school year, and I know that we have a great summer in store with the upcoming move.
I'm excited to go in to my student teaching classroom one last time tomorrow, for the last day for the morning kindergarten class. I already cried after saying good-bye to the afternoon class, so I can only imagine how tomorrow will go. On top of saying good-bye to the class, I'll be saying good-bye to the elementary school that I love so much. After attending the school from kindergarten to fifth grade, I have been going back to help former teachers for the past eleven years. That's a total of seventeen years spent making memories at this school! Knowing that I'll probably never be back inside the school is going to make tomorrow really emotional.
This is also the first time in five years that my family won't be going to high school graduation, which I believe occurs sometime this week. Five years ago, I graduated high school; the year after that, we went to support the twins' Godfather; the following year, my brother graduated; last year, we went to support a friend of mine (the daughter of my mom's friend)... as much as I love celebrating accomplishments and all, I'm kind of glad to not have a graduation to attend this year. Well, at the high school anyway... almost forgot my own college graduation and the twins' kindergarten graduation this past weekend!
I hope everyone who is finishing school this week has a wonderful end to the 2014-2015 school year, and that summer will hold lots of enjoyment for all!

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.
