Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
My family is gearing up for some excitement next week... we're finally planning our day at Disney!
Back on Christmas, I told everyone that we were getting a day at Disney as part of their Christmas presents. Unfortunately, with the way everyone's schedules worked, we haven't been able to go yet. We're really excited to be going to the parks this week though, and today I spent some time looking at attractions and entertainment with my mom so we could talk about what we want to fit into our day.
The kids didn't know when we were going until just last week. We told the older kids, and then yesterday we told the twins (because you can't tell them anything too far in advance or you'll never hear the end of it). So all day today they kept talking about how long we have until we go to Magic Kingdom and our big plans. Twin B crawled up on the couch next to my mom and whispered about what ride she wants to go on, but made my mom pinky promise to keep it a secret.
We've never gone to Disney so quickly after a previous trip before. We went when I was six, when I was in eighth grade, between my sophomore and junior years of college, and then we just went last Spring when we were down here looking at houses. Since it's been a little under a year since our last visit, we just did many of the rides and whatnot that we love. This time, we're planning to catch some of the attractions that we normally miss out on.
Since this is my first time visiting Disney as a Cast Member, I'm really looking forward to the experience. I feel like I'll be seeing things with new eyes, but I'm sure that I'll still be thrilled by the magic that all Guests get to experience. Of course, the best part of going to Disney with your family is seeing the joy and excitement in your youngest family members' eyes. I hope all of my siblings have a great time, but I know that my littlest sisters will really enjoy everything.
What's your favorite thing to do at Disney? I'm looking forward to doing some new things, like riding the train around Magic Kingdom.
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.

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.
