Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Well tonight, I'm exhausted, and I really can't think straight enough to write a long blog post. I'm just sitting here waiting for this tv show to end so I can go to bed. But I will say that I had a really nice night out with my siblings.
We started the night with a nice walk around our neighborhood. My parents stayed home, and I just went out with my brother and three sisters. Everyone was so well behaved, and it was a really enjoyable walk together.
After our walk, my siblings accompanied me to the elementary school science fair. One of the kids in the class where I'm student teaching had been very excited about a project she was showing at the fair tonight. My mom and I discussed it over dinner, and I decided that it would be nice to go over and show some support. My siblings all came with me to look at the projects and experiments. Again, everyone was so well behaved. Plus, the little girl who I was supporting was extremely happy to see me there, so it was a win-win situation.
To end our night out, I took the kids to the local ice cream place. Nope, I'm still broke, but our parents gave us money! When we got there, we were lucky enough to run into some family friends who we haven't seen in a while. My little sisters were thrilled to see their friends, and it was great to be able to talk for a while.
I really like nights where everyone is getting along and behaving... No one was whiny or had a bad attitude and it was great. Hopefully we can have another night out like this again soon!

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.
