Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Well today was quite something! We certainly are never lacking an adventure or good story around here, that's for sure!
The day started out pretty normal. It was the start of my second to last day of student teaching, so I was transferring control of the classroom back to the teacher. I got to take a picture with both the morning and afternoon classes, and the kids were so sweet all day. They know that my last day is tomorrow, and we're all sad to see my student teaching come to an end.
Then, about halfway through the day, I received a message from my mom that she had picked up my little sisters from school and had taken my dad to the hospital. Yesterday he had been feeling pain in what appeared to be his side or his stomach. My mom just reminded me that I'm always the calm one in emergencies and that I should just go straight home to be with my other siblings after school.
Luckily, my dad ended up just having a kidney stone. He was released from the hospital and is doing as well as can be expected. He's still in pain, but at least it's nothing more serious. Still, I'm sure he would appreciate it if everyone would keep him in their thoughts.
Wish me luck on my last day of student teaching!! I know I'll be in to visit a lot, but I know it's going to be sad tomorrow... I can't believe it's actually over!

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.
